Cybersecurity Awareness Training
Cybersecurity awareness training is an essential part of working safely in today’s connected environment. Each UNCP employee has the responsibility to remain abreast of the latest threats and tactics to protect UNCP from disruption by cyber threat actors. In addition, both the UNC Board of Governors’ Policy 1400.1 on Information Technology Governance and UNCP’s IT Security Framework, ISO 27002, dictate mandatory IT Security Training and Awareness on a routine basis.
This year’s cybersecurity awareness program includes one assessment module and one training module. The sole intent for these modules is to raise awareness and increase the level of preparedness for cybersecurity threats across the organization.
Security Awareness Proficiency Assessment
This assessment module will provide insight for each employee regarding their level of cybersecurity knowledge and preparedness. It will also measure UNCP’s current level of cybersecurity knowledge and will be used as a baseline for future cybersecurity awareness training moving forward
Length: 10 minutes (21 security awareness questions)
