SUBJECT: Information Security Responsibilities - Action Required
President Brown announced last month that IT security training would be
mandatory for all University of Colorado employees. As employees of the
university we are each entrusted with protecting the campus computing and
networking resources as well as protecting sensitive information. A security
training program has been designed by the System IT Security Office with the
intent of clarifying this responsibility.
The Boulder campus will be deploying the training in several phases over the
coming months. The schedule is as follows:
--On November 8, 2007 all employees in the IT Technician and IT Professional
classes will automatically be enrolled in both the basic and advanced training
modules. The training needs to be completed by January 7, 2008.
--On December 1, 2007 all classified staff and professional exempt employees
will automatically be enrolled in the basic security training module. The
training needs to be completed by January 31, 2008.
--On February 1, 2008 all faculty will automatically be enrolled in the basic
security training module. The training needs to be completed by April 30, 2008.
Once you have been automatically enrolled on the date listed above, you will
receive an e-mail from the CU-Boulder IT Security Office with step-by-step
instructions on how to access and complete the training. The modules typically
require 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
I understand this is an additional commitment for your already busy schedule,

timeframe established. The university is a daily target of hackers trying to
steal private information about our employees, students, and customers. Some
recent breaches of our sensitive data have demonstrated a strong need to inform
the campus community about how to better protect our data and ourselves from
these attacks. I strongly urge you to complete this mandatory training at your
