Security Awareness Training

Security awareness training is an ongoing effort to educate the FHSU community about policies, procedures, and best practices relating to information security.  It will teach you how to create a good password, how to spot phishing scams, how to handle sensitive information, and more. 

FHSU has purchased "Securing the Human" to train faculty, staff, adjuncts, and student employees.  Securing the Human is an online computer-based training program produced by SANS, one of the most trusted sources for information security training and security certification in the world.  Training consists of a number of videos that cover specific security topics.  The videos range anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes in length and can be completed at your own pace.  There are approximately 45 minutes of mandatory modules, as well as several recommended modules that you can choose to watch.  You can re-watch the videos at any time.

How it works

  1. You will receive a welcome email from FHSU Security Awareness ( when your training account has been activated. Accounts for current faculty and staff will be provisioned on August 9, and training is due October 31. Accounts for student employees and graduate assistants will be provisioned November 1, and training is due December 15.
  2. Log in to Security Awareness Training with your TigerNetID username and password.  Use Firefox or Chrome - the web site doesn't behave properly in Internet Explorer.
  3. Click on a module to begin training. Start with "You are the Shield" in the top left corner.
  4. Watch the video and answer the questions.
  5. Modules that you have fully completed will turn blue and have the word "Completed" under the title.
  6. You will receive an email when your training is complete.

For further directions, click on "Manual" on the left side of the Securing Awareness Training web site.

I never received a welcome email, or I can't find my welcome email  What do I do?

 Try logging in to Security Awareness Training with your TigerNetID username and password.  If you receive an error message, please contact Jessica States at

Who has to do it?

Faculty (including adjuncts, Virtual College, part-time, and full-time) and staff (including part-time and full-time) will start training in August.  Student employees and graduate assistants will start training in November. 

How long will it take? 

There are approximately 45 minutes of mandatory content spread out over 15 modules.  You can do all of the modules in one sitting, or you can do each module individually at different times.  The choice is yours.

When is it due?

Faculty, staff, and adjuncts must complete training by October 31.  Student employees will begin training on November 1 and continue until the December 15.

What if I don’t complete training? 

Your TigerNetID will be suspended until you make plans to complete training.

Why are we doing this?

Each member of the FHSU community plays a large part in keeping our systems and data secure.  There has been a nation-wide increase in cyber-attacks aimed at higher ed institutions, and security experts expect the number of attacks to continue increasing.  The majority of attacks rely on tricking humans into letting the attackers in.  The best way to defend against these attacks is to educate all of our faculty, staff, and students.

Also, it is required by FHSU policy and the Kansas Information Technology Executive Council.

The Next button doesn't work! 

Use Firefox or Chrome.  The buttons don't work correctly in Internet Explorer.

How can I tell if I'm done? 

You will receive an email at your official email account when your training is complete. The subject is "Training Complete: You have completed your Security Awareness Training" It may go to Junk or Clutter.

You can also check if you’ve completed training by logging into the training web site.  If you’re done, there is text at the top that reads, “You have completed all required training for Security Awareness Training.”  If this text is not visible, look for any modules with a gray background.  Incomplete modules are gray, and completed modules are blue.
