Cybersecurity Compliance Training

Deadline: October 31, 2022

In October 2019, the Georgia Governor’s Office, along with the University System of Georgia (USG), mandated that all state and university employees complete cybersecurity training on a semi-annual basis. USG partnered with KnowBe4, an industry leader in the cybersecurity awareness platform, to deliver this system-wide training.

All VSU employees, including faculty, staff, adjunct instructors, student employees, and graduate/teaching assistants, must complete the IT Cybersecurity Compliance Training by the given deadline. Supervisors should ensure that all employees complete the required training.
