Securing the Human Online Training

Online training is provided to units by way of SANS Securing the Human Program. This program offers a series of videos that are assigned to the employee. Once a unit/department/college requests accounts, employees log into the program at using their Bronco NetID and password and views the videos. At the end of each video is a quiz that must be completed successfully in order to move on to the next video. 

If you are the unit IT support person, or person deemed by your unit to be responsible for your unit's security training, you must request unit training by submitting a security training request

Upon receipt of the request, IT will set up unit sub-accounts in the system and assign the required 23 modules (see below). A sub-account admin selected by the requestor will be assigned and that person will have the ability to run reports and check on the status of their unit. Since the system generates messages that cannot be turned off, it is highly recommended that the admin contact their unit staff to inform them this training is being assigned prior to the accounts being created and training assigned. The Office of Information is merely the facilitator and does not function as the sub-account administrator.
