IT Security Awareness Training
To meet this mandate, NOVA and VCCS leverages a security awareness training solution. Annual training consists of four courses as well as five policy documents to read and accept. Completion of assigned training is a requirement for system access.
Training status is recorded within the system and completion certificates are available for download as new courses are finished.
Security Awareness Training is required annually of all full time and adjunct credit faculty, full time staff, administrators, P-14s and contractors. The purpose is to provide valuable information about best practices, policies, and procedures to ensure secure information systems at NOVA. Our goal is for everyone to enjoy a safe, reliable computing environment.
This free online software training and support provides short, easy-to-view tutorials that give you just-in-time answers to your "how do I do that?" software questions. The tutorials help you do more with the software you use every day.Learn More
