IT security training for 2012 now available

By Harvard Townsend

State policy requires that all state employees receive annual training in IT security. The 2012 version for K-State is now available and must be completed by all employees, including student employees, by July 31. This year's training builds on the foundation of last year's introduction to basic IT security topics. It contains a single module, has no narration and should only take 20-30 minutes to complete.

To take the training, go to the SecureIT training page, login with your eID and password, and click on part 1 of "2012 Secure IT @ K-State Training."

If you do not have green checkmarks next to all four parts of the 2011 training, that means you didn't complete last year's training and must finish it first.

Once you complete the online security training, your personnel record in HRIS will be updated to indicate you have met the state requirement. It will be listed as course "Secure IT Refresher FY12" with course code WIT007 under your "training summary" in "learning and development" in HRIS.

For questions about your training record, please contact Human Resources Training at training@k-state.edu or 785-532-6277. For questions about the content of the training, please contact information security and compliance at security@k-state.edu or 785-532-2540.
