Security Tip: Enhanced Annual Cybersecurity Training

Security TipEvery year, in accordance with the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR), you are required to take an Annual Cybersecurity Awareness training.

This year, we are trying something new!
The Annual Cybersecurity Awareness training will be assigned to ALL SHSU faculty and staff this October.

The benefits?
Currently, all SHSU faculty and staff are on a different schedule for taking their Annual Cybersecurity training. By resetting everyone’s scheduled training, you will experience the following: 

  • Consistent Cybersecurity training schedule
  • 3 months to complete your training (currently, you only have 30 days)
  • Entry for a prize from the IT@Sam Security Office (if you complete the training in October) 

Why October?
October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. If you complete the training in October, you get useful information from our campaign (more on that soon) to protect yourself and have a better understanding of why this training is so important.

When is the Annual Cybersecurity Awareness training due?
Once you receive the training notification, you have until December 31, 2021, to complete your required cybersecurity training.

To learn more about the importance of cybersecurity, how to protect yourself and join in on friendly competition, keep an eye out for our Cybersecurity Awareness campaign starting in October.
