Information Security Awareness Training


As part of the IRM-002 – Acceptable Use of the University’s Information Technology Resources policy, all users should complete information security awareness training each year (annually). If you are an employee of UVA (e.g., faculty, staff, contractors, and student employees), you can take the Information Security Awareness Training (ISAT) at any time.  In addition, we will email you an annual reminder as well. 

High-Security VPN (HSVPN) users: You must complete High Security Awareness Training (HSAT) each year (annually) or your access to the HSVPN will be revoked.  If you fail to complete your annual training and your HSVPN access is disabled, then you must contact Access Management to have this access restored.   Each year we email all HSVPN users who have not completed High Security Awareness Training (HSAT) in that calendar year reminding them to complete the High Security Awareness Training (HSAT) or have their HSVPN disabled until they do. 

If you cannot log into the HSAT, then please email us at [email protected].


Please email [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns regarding the training and any impacts experienced by the users you support.
