As part of our commitment to information security and privacy at Florida Atlantic University, all university employees who use FAU network resources are required to participate in cyber security awareness training. This training is intended to educate faculty and staff on identifying different types of cyber threats and best practices when connected online. You are expected to complete the course within the 30 days of your initial enrollment date (your official due date is indicated within the Skillsoft training module).
