Important Notice: Skillsoft content is no longer available via Internet Explorer. Skillsoft content is currently any book, video, EHS or professional development content on the CSU Learn platform. This includes Security Awareness Training. We recommend updated browsers such as Chrome and Firefox to complete online trainings.
In accordance with system-wide Information Security policy, faculty, staff and student employees are required to complete Information Security Awareness training on a periodic basis. Most faculty, staff, and student employees are required to complete the online training once every three years with periodic refresher updates in between. Those with privileged access to information assets or access to confidential data will require more frequent and specialized training and are required to take the training annually.
The goal of Information Security awareness training is to better educate CSUN employees on good information security practices both at home and at work. The training is meant to be convenient and is Internet-based so you can complete it from any computer (training cannot be completed from mobile devices at this time). You may also start and stop the training as your schedule permits.
