ASU Information Security Training
All ASU faculty and staff are required to take information security training within the first month of employment and annually thereafter. This online, self-paced class shows you how to protect ASU data and information systems from harm. The training takes about 30 minutes to complete and includes a presentation and a quiz. You must answer 11 out of 13 quiz questions correctly to earn credit for the course. You may re-take the quiz if necessary. For more information and to take the training, visit the ASU Information Security Training page.
Training Dashboard and Compliance Progress
- Information Security Awareness Training Dashboard: The Training Dashboard is available to you 24/7 and is updated once a day with the most current training completion data. It identifies which individuals have completed or not completed the training course and allows you to export information to assist in your communication efforts. Please utilize the updated Knowledge Base article for detailed information regarding use of the Dashboard.
- Communication Templates: Templates for faculty and staff/students are available to assist with compliance communication with faculty, staff and student workers and may be modified as is appropriate for your specific use. Also available is a Google Sheet that may be used to provide feedback or request clarification in an effort to keep things running smoothly.
- Support for Training Enforcement: In support of compliance enforcement efforts, departments may request an ASURITE password reset for individuals who have not completed training. If you think this would be a beneficial approach for your department, please email email@example.com to start the password reset process. The affected individual can reach out to the Experience Center at 855-278-5080 to reset their password and gain temporary access to their accounts.
