Information Security Awareness Training

Computing Services and Systems Development has put in place a robust array of security measures and centralized security controls to protect the University of Pittsburgh’s network and its data. But we also need your help. Everyone affiliated with Pitt shares in the responsibility of protecting the University’s computing environment. One of our goals is to provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to protect yourself---and the University---from cyber threats.

We now have an exciting new addition to our portfolio of security awareness resources. All faculty, staff, and student workers have access to online training from the highly regarded SANS Securing the Human training series. This training will help you to better understand and utilize security best practices, which means you will be better prepared to protect both yourself and the University.
