Why take this course? Security Awareness Training is a vital part of security. As an employee (or even if you are just taking this course out of interest), you may have access to information and data that may be confidential or sensitive. It is critical that you know how to not only protect that information, but also on how to protect yourself and your workstation. IT Security is the responsibility of protecting information and is the responsibility of everyone.

The Security Awareness Training program was created to raise awareness about information security and security best practices. This course was created to help you protect sensitive data, protect yourself, and if you are employed, then to protect your employer.

Security and Privacy is a major concern, especially with using today's technologies.
