What is Secure UD training?
In light of ongoing developments in the digital landscape, the University of Delaware stresses the importance of information security. Safe information storage and computer use is not simply something for IT professionals or computer scientists. Anyone can be the victim of hackers and malware, and one weak spot can be exploited to expose an entire organization. You are a target. Information security is everyone’s responsibility. The University of Delaware has adopted a training program to improve internal computer and information security. Secure UD training is a modular, comprehensive system that addresses topical issues in computer security. Training media is designed for all employees, so even non-expert users will benefit from the program.
I viewed the videos yesterday at home while I was off work and thought they were nicely done, and well presented. I also really appreciated the URL tie in to the UD documents that needed to be viewed before moving on – it positively re-enforced the fact that this wasn’t just an outside firm presentation, but was tied to UD’s policies. For what it’s worth, my wife (who does not work at UD) did find the videos informative – she was curious why it wasn’t my usual iTunes selection playing while I clicked away, so she watched and learned.
The encryption module made me aware that you can encrypt data that you do not want exposed to hackers or people that you do not want looking at it. This module should be given more awareness on campus especially when handling confidential and sensitive material.Unsigned
I completed the training modules today, and I think the program was very nicely done. The information presented is clear and simple, so even employees with very little knowledge in this area will learn what they need to know. The program will serve to remind UD personnel at all levels about the importance of data security, the applicable UD policies, and steps they can take to ensure that their data is protected. Also, I did not encounter any system issues while reviewing the videos.Unsigned
I took the training several months ago; I found most of it very useful to me in both my personal and professional life.Unsigned
