Education & Training

We provide a variety of cybersecurity training, information, and resources to everyone using IT resources at UVA to help them protected both their, and UVA's, digital resources.  Prime among the various resources is our security awareness training. 

Information Security Awareness Training (ISAT) and High Security Awareness Training (HSAT)

All users (e.g., faculty, staff, contractors, students and student employees) should complete information security awareness training each year (annually).  Information security awareness training is in the Workday Learning system and is new and improved. You can take the Information Security Awareness Training (ISAT) in Workday at any time if you wish. For further details, please visit our ISAT in Workday page

If you have, or want to have, access to the High Security VPN (HSVPN) then you must complete the High Security Awareness Training (HSAT) in Workday each year (annually).  Completing the student Responsible Computing Quiz will not satisfy the requirement for high security information security awareness training. 

If you are unable to login to Workday or have other questions about security awareness and training, please email us at [email protected]

UVA Student - Responsible Computing Quiz (RCQ)

All UVA student users (e.g., are not employed by or work for UVA) must complete information security awareness training as part of their onboarding to UVA.  The information security awareness training is known as the Responsible Computing Quiz.   If your only role at UVA is as a student, then you should complete information security awareness training by clicking here to go to the quiz.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at [email protected]
