Securing the Human, by LSU Information Technology Services

*Completion required upon employment only

Today's technology has advanced our lives and work environments with instant communication and access to information. However, these conveniences also introduce new risks and threats. It has become much simpler to carry out cyber-attacks to steal information, take control of systems, and more. LSU is committed to educating and protecting its community against these malicious threats. Securing the Human is a short, 30-minute course designed to cover basic computer security topics and provide additional resources to improve your security posture, both at home and on campus.

All faculty and staff are required to take this training. 

This training should be completed one time upon employment, within the first 30 days of hire.
