We have a homegrown system here and all students are required to take it. In fact, it is created by students, somewhat
along the lines of the Educause video contests. Student employees of the security organization use their creative and
innovative talents to produce training that is memorable and even entertaining to take.

Subject: [SECURITY] Do you require students take security awareness training
Good morning all,
We made good progress at the end of 2013 by getting annual security awareness training required for all staff
(cheers!). It is delivered with our enterprise learning management system so we can report on completion by individual
and departments. Many of you have had this in place for some time. Thank you for leading the way.
Now I'm interested in tackling the student side, specifically requiring training, upon account set up.
Will you contact me on or off thread to let me know if you have instituted "required" security awareness training for
all students. Please indicate whether it is a home grown solution or commercial.
I'm building my case and would like to point to the many successful programs that I believe are in place.
Thank you in advance,
Chief Information Security Officer
