Required Information Security Training for Faculty and Staff Now Available
Data security has never been more important to the University as a community and as an institution. With bad actors constantly evolving their methods of attack, the University’s faculty and staff remain its first and last line of defense.
All Syracuse University faculty and staff must complete mandatory information security training in accordance with New York State requirements. Employees now can complete their annual training at any time. To do so:
- Go to MySlice
- From the Employee Home page, click the Employee Resources tile
- Click the Security Awareness tile to access the training
“Even in the last few months, we have seen bad actors adapt to new security measures,” Chief Information Security Officer Christopher Croad says. “These training sessions are essential to discuss best practices and to learn how to protect against new threats.”
To receive credit for completing the training, employees will enter a code provided at the end of the video, as well as take a brief quiz. The expected time required to complete the training is 30-35 minutes. The deadline to complete this training is March 31. Employees with questions can contact Information Security IT Analyst Sarah Marciniak at email@example.com.
“We know everyone has a lot going on right now,” Croad says. “We appreciate everyone’s investment of time and energy in protecting the University’s data. It really is up to all of us.”
