Loyola Aware

Loyola Aware is Loyola’s information security awareness program designed for all faculty and staff. The purpose of the program is to increase employees’ security awareness by providing short video snippets that bring to light specific topics in information security. By increasing awareness, the program allows everyone to recognize IT Security concerns and respond accordingly. Beginning in October 2015, ITS will release a series of training modules, distributed by the University Information Security Office, that can be accessed via Sakai. Each module contains a brief video followed by five assessment questions. The idea is to reinforce the video content by asking questions to let the participant self assess their understanding about each topic. The modules contain a variety of topics which include: social engineering, email and messaging, browsing and many others.
