Information Security Awareness Training

Information Security Awareness Training at UVA 

If you are a UVA non-student user (e.g., faculty, staff, contractors) or student employee and do not need access to the HSVPN, then you should complete information security awareness training annually in InfoSec's Litmos LMS system. You can take the Information Security Awareness Training (ISAT) in Litmos at any time.  Every year we send out a reminder to all non-student/non-HSVPN users who have NOT completed the ISAT in this training year (July 1st-June 30th), reminding them to complete the Information Security Awareness Training (ISAT) in Litmos.

All UVA student users (e.g., are not employed by or work for UVa) must complete information security awareness training as part of their matriculation to UVA.  This information security awareness training is known as the Student CyberSecurity Awareness Training (SCSAT). It used to be known as the Responsible Computing Quiz.   If your only role at UVa is as a student, then you should complete the Student CyberSecurity Awareness Training (SCSAT) by clicking here to go to the SCSAT on the InfoSec Litmos learning management system (LMS).

All persons who have or want to have High Security Virtual Private Network (HSVPN) access must complete High Security Awareness Training (HSAT) each training year or access to the HSVPN will be revoked or denied.  The requirement is part of  UVA's IRM-002 – Acceptable Use of the University’s Information Technology Resources policy.  The HSAT course is on the InfoSec Litmos learning management system (LMS) not the University's Workday.   Additional information is available on our High Security Awareness Training (HSAT) webpage.

We thank you for your patience and vigilance in improving security awareness in the University community.
