ITS wants to help the campus community to stay safe online by providing access to Cyber Security Training, information about data privacy, and great information as we participate in the National Cyber Security Awareness Month every October.

Cyber Security Training

In an effort to better educate the UIS Campus Community about cyber security we are providing training. Please login to the University of Illinois System’s Security Education Platform to see the topics that are available.

Data Privacy Day

Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. At UIS, we want to help students, faculty and staff focus on privacy in your daily lives and what you can do to protect your data.

National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM)

Cybersecurity Awareness Month October 2022: See Yourself in Cybersecurity

We all play a role in each day in our own security. We put on a seatbelt or lock a door. We play a similar role in our digital and online security: we can take actions that improve it and reduce risks.

This October we encourage you to take steps that raise your awareness of cybersecurity in all your roles at the university and beyond. We're focusing on Phishing: how to identify it, report it, and protect yourself against it.

Take a Live Training

Phishing can be so convincing you don't know you are affected
Phishing attacks can be quite convincing. You can fall victim more easily than you think.

Become a better phishing detector and learn to evade these schemes at our live training events. Cybersecurity Training and Awareness Team staff members will take you through phishing training and lead interactive discussion via Zoom. Participants get credit for completing this quarter's required cybersecurity training and will be entered to win prizes. Dive deeper into our training topic and better protect yourself and your data. Follow the links below to participate in the session of your choice. Advance registration is required.
