Data Security Awareness Training

Data Security Awareness Training

The University of Chicago is instituting an annual online Data Security Awareness Training. Participation in this training is required. The training will help you protect yourself from identity theft, help the University properly meet compliance needs, and protect the reputation of this great institution. This online training session takes less than 20 minutes and covers the most important aspects of data safety and security. 

This page contains the training materials but not the actual training. You will be sent an auto-generated email when it is time for you to take the training. The training consists of a 15-minute video, a 10-question quiz, and a downloadable PDF resource guide. You will have 30 days to complete the training. You will be sent automated email reminders on a regular basis until you have successfully completed the training. Your Department or Unit Head may contact you if you do not complete the training within the 30-day cycle. 

​If you experience any technical difficulties with the video or would like to make an accessibility-related request, please send a message to security-training@uchicago.edu.
