About the Training

The required Cybersecurity Awareness Training is approximately 1 hour in length, and can be completed entirely online.  There is no cost.

The training can be completed all at once, or your progress can be saved and resumed at a later time.  

University of Regina employees are encouraged to complete the online survey and training modules. The cybersecurity awareness training will provide valuable information to help you identify online risks, become more aware of common types of cyberattacks and better equip you to report threats.

Required Training

There is an initial “Awareness, Attitudes and Perceptions Survey” which will be issued prior to issuing training.  This seeks to establish a baseline assessment prior to training, and takes approximately 5 minutes to complete.

Once the survey is completed, 6 training courses will be assigned.  All 6 courses are required to be completed.
