Cybersecurity awareness training is an important part of K-State’s strategy to protect our information systems and data. “We ALL have a responsibility to protect the information assets entrusted to us.

This training, required by state statute, introduces basic computer security concepts and good security practices and takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
Once you complete the training, your personnel record in HRIS will be updated. It will be listed under the Training Summary as Cybersecurity Awareness 2018, with the course code WIT590.
