Information security and protecting sensitive data is an important concern for the University of Arizona. The ever-changing landscape of cyber-attacks requires additional education and training to ensure that our UA community is properly informed on how to protect sensitive information. The University's Information Security Office has updated the UA's online security awareness training and it is now available in UAccess Learning.

All UA employees, student workers and Designated Campus Colleagues (DCCs) with UA NetIDs are required to complete the training by April 30.

The Benefit of Security Awareness

The University's security awareness training is designed to not only help employees understand how to protect University data, but also how to protect themselves, their personal and mobile devices, and their identities. 

How do I complete the training?

User-friendly updated awareness training is available online in UAccess Learning. Instructions for enrolling and completing training can be found on the Information Security website.

Tips for completion

The training is 38 minutes in length, and includes information on University policy, current security threats, and physical and mobile device security. Don't have 40 minutes of interrupted time? Your progress will be saved when logging off and you can resume the session at a later time. 

When do I need to complete the training?

All UA faculty, staff, student workers and DCCs with NetIDs are required to complete updated security awareness training by April 30. After the initial training is completed, annual refresher courses will be implemented, which will be shorter to complete, and will include updates on security threats and protections.
