Protecting people and their information is very important to the LTU community. Unfortunately cybersecurity breaches have become very common and regardless of the technical safeguards taken, most of them originate through some common ploys at gaining confidential access.
LTU will be making available the KnowBe4 training program to raise awareness for Faculty and Staff. This series of short educational videos covers topics such as Social Engineering techniques used to illegally gain access systems, Wi-Fi Security protecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and others. Some of the available topics will be mandatory for all employees; others will be specific to certain job types based on the functions they perform.
