Security Training

All employees and contractors of UNT, UNT Dallas, and UNT System are required to complete Security Awareness Trainining.  Employees who were hired before January 1, 2019 and have completed training through the onboarding process have already met this requirement.

Keeping our confidential data secure requires the effort of technology, processes and people. In this training, you will learn why you are an important part of information security and what you can do to protect data. In addition, many regulations and standards require security awareness training for every employee.

Employees should login to, and click on the link in the Information Security Training box.

No. You can view each short video over as many sessions as required. You do not need to complete the training in one session because your progress will be saved when you exit the training site.

All employees should complete the training by Wednesday, November 13, 2019.  Employees who do not complete the training by this date are at risk of losing access to computer resources.

The length of all of the required videos in the training is about 48 minutes. All videos have a one-question assessment at the completion. There is also one page of information to read after the “You Are the Shield” segment.

Yes! However, the CPE is specific to security certifications.

UNT System does not restrict employees from using mobile devices unless confidential information is involved. Confidential information may not be stored on mobile computing devices, i.e., laptops, tablets, smart phones, etc., unless the device is encrypted. Cloud storage services are available through One Drive for Business.

No.  The FERPA training module included in the Securing the Human training is meant to enhance rather than replace, any existing FERPA training.
