Security Awareness Training Has Begun

Technology Services is happy to announce that Security Awareness Training has officially started! FHSU has purchased "Securing the Human" to train faculty, staff, and student employees. Securing the Human is an online computer-based training program produced by SANS, one of the most trusted sources for information security training and security certification in the world. Training consists of a number of videos that cover specific security topics. The videos range anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes in length and can be completed at your own pace. There are approximately 45 minutes of mandatory modules, as well as several recommended modules that you can choose to watch. You can re-watch the videos at any time.

All faculty and staff should have received an email from FHSU Security Awareness [] on Wednesday, August 9. The email's subject was "Welcome to your Security Awareness Training Account." If you did not get an email, try logging in to Securing the Human with your TigerNetID username and password. If you receive an error message, please contact Jessica States at

Faculty (including adjuncts, Virtual College, part-time, and full-time) and staff (including part-time and full-time) must complete training by October 31.

Student employees and graduate assistants will start training in November. We will send out further details in October.

Please use Firefox or Chrome to complete this training. The buttons don't work in Internet Explorer!
