Increasing the level of information security awareness in LMU’s user community is vital to ensuring the security of LMU’s information and technology environment. Did you know that the number of worldwide phishing attacks detected by Kaspersky (a security vendor) hit 129.9 million during the second period of 2019?
With the goal of a more security-aware community in mind, ITS is excited to introduce a revamped Information Security Awareness Training Program at LMU, which we are releasing to all faculty and staff as an extended pilot. The fully online training program aims to educate faculty and staff about how to identify, detect and protect LMU’s environment from constantly evolving cyber security threats that target everyone.
We are asking for your voluntary participation in this pilot program by December 31, 2019. There are seven modules in this program and each takes about 3-4 minutes to complete. You do not need to complete all modules in one sitting.
Based on your feedback, we will make adjustments before rolling out the program in January 2020 as a formal annual mandatory training program at LMU. For detailed information about this program, visit its.lmu.edu/SecureIt.
