All employees: July 31 deadline looming for IT security training

Submitted by Betsy Edwards

The July 31 deadline is looming for all employees, including current student employees, to complete K-State's 2012 security training. On average, it takes 20-30 minutes to complete.

State policy requires that all state employees receive annual training in IT security, said Harvard Townsend, K-State's former IT security officer.

Townsend's May 10 article covered these key points:

  1. To take the traininggo to the SecureIT training page, sign in with your eID and password, and select Part 1 of "2012 Secure IT @ K-State Training."
  2. 2011 training must be completed before doing the 2012 training. If you don't 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.
  3. After you complete the online security training, your personnel record in HRIS will be updated to indicate you've met the state requirement. It will be listed in your HRIS account, under “learning and development” and then in your “training summary”. It will display as “Secure IT Refresher FY12″ with course code WIT007.
