New Online Training: Information Privacy and Security at Penn

In Penn’s complex environment it is difficult to be aware of all the requirements that apply, and all the tools that are available, to help protect the privacy and security of confidential information. Recognizing these challenges, Information Systems and Computing and the Office of Audit, Compliance and Privacy have developed an online training module called “Information Privacy and Security at Penn: A Practical Guide.” The module, which requires less than twenty minutes to complete, provides an overview of our privacy and security policies and principles, and identifies resources for further assistance.

This new online training is available to all Penn employees. To access the module simply go to the University’s Knowledge Link site, at http://knowledgelink.upenn.edu/welcome/index.html. Log in using your PennKey and password, click on “Optional,” then select “Information Privacy and Security at Penn” from the list of available courses. When you have completed the training you can expect to have a broad understanding of our privacy and security policies and procedures, practical knowledge about how to protect Penn data as well as your own, and knowledge of the resources that are available to you in this area.
