Training & Awareness

Cyber Security Awareness Training

Western University's “Computing, Technology & Information Resources” Policy has been created to foster an environment that will protect Western Ontario University, its students, staff and faculty from information security threats that could compromise privacy, productivity, reputation, or intellectual property rights. (see MAPP 1.13 - Computing, Technology & Information Resources)

Western’s digital infrastructure contains important and sometimes very sensitive information relating to our Academic and Research activities. Taking appropriate precautions to ensure the security of your information assets is a shared responsibility that involves everyone in our campus community.

Western has partnered with Terranova Security to provide the Western community with Cyber Security Awareness training.  This training is designed to highlight Cyber Security best practices on a variety of subjects including using strong passwords and recognizing phishing attacks. This information will help you to do your part in assisting Western to ensure that our digital infrastructure and assets are managed safely and securely. This training module takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and does not need to be completed in one session.  That is, if you leave the module midway, you may continue later. A certificate will be issued provided you pass the evaluation with a minimum score of 70%.

The Cyber Security Awareness training can be accessed by clicking on the Cyber Security Awareness Training icon below.  To log-in, you will first be directed to Western’s Single Sign-On service where you will enter your Western University credentials.  Once you have been authenticated, you will be forwarded to the Terranova training platform.
