Cybersecurity Spring TrainingIt is time for Cybersecurity Awareness Spring Training! Information Security will initiate the USG mandated Spring Cybersecurity Awareness training. The training is required for Columbus State University faculty, staff and all users that access information or information systems.

The training is mandated by the Board of Regents, from the Handbook: 5.9.2 Security Awareness, Training and Education Requirements. USG organizations cannot protect confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and information systems without ensuring that each person involved understands their roles and responsibilities and is adequately trained to perform them. Learning Objectives USG organizations shall provide cybersecurity awareness training to users that access information or information systems.
