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. The employee logs into the program at https://wmich.securingthehuman.org using their Bronco NetID and password and views the videos. At the end of each video is a test that must be completed successfully in order to move on to the next video. 

Upon request, IT will set up unit sub-accounts in the system and assign the required 22 modules (see below). A sub-account admin 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.

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