Quick Start

Available to: Departments

Cost: No charge

Training is required for new Departmental Security Administrators (DSAs) and Data Trustees. DSAs or Data Trustees who have previously attended training are always welcome to schedule another session as a refresher. Security Camp is a free, one-day computing security conference hosted annually by IS&T.


In a classroom setting, DSA training provides a hands-on approach to mastering the functions and tasks of a Departmental Security Administrator. Data Trustee training offers a one-on-one session allowing the individual to master the functions/tasks needed to perform this role. Security Awareness Training is an online PowerPoint presentation designed to familiarize you with common computer security concerns and methods for avoiding improper exposure of critical University data. At Security Camp, those responsible for maintaining computing security in the higher education environment share their experiences so all may benefit.
