Individual Security Training


OIT offers individualized information security training to departments called Securing the Human. Securing the Human is a series of short online videos with accompanying quizzes taken through Blackboard Learn. Blackboard Learn keeps track of your progress, allowing users to complete the course in multiple sessions when time allows. Securing the Human provides basic IT security training on topics including data protection best practices, social engineering, phishing, privacy, and introductions to data regulations such as FERPA, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS.


Faculty, staff, and student employees.

How to Request Training

If a department would like to request training, please contact the security office at security@ohio.edu. You will need to provide information about what department is requesting the training, the number of people that need enrolled, and their OHIO IDs. If the department requires training due to the sensitive data it access, stores, or processes, please include that information in your email.
