September Means "Back to School"... and other things!
This month marks the first full month of the fall semester. While everything seems to revolve around classes and campus life returning, we want to take this time to tell you about a few other things that you can expect in September.
SANS Security Awareness Training Moving to Talent Management
In February 2012, SHSU sent out invitations to complete security awareness training in accordance with Texas Administrative Code 202. Since its inception, the trainings have been held on the SANS website. We will soon be bringing this training to Talent Management.
