Information Security and Research Security

Please visit Information Security Awareness Training. An organization's people, information, operations, and systems are critical assets. Protecting the safety, confidentiality, integrity, and availability of these assets is essential to maintaining compliance. In order for the HGSE's security program to operate most effectively, all members of the HGSE community must help the School to secure its informational assets. Information security awareness training provides the community with physical, administrative, and technical security basics, as well as an introduction to School and University policies and procedures.

Many HGSE staff, students, and faculty engage in research that involves the collection or use of legally protected information. If the research involves, or may involve, confidential (CI), high-risk confidential (HRCI), or human subject information (HSI), researchers are encouraged to attend this training to learn HGSE's research data security submission, review, and approval process.
