Faculty & Staff Cybersecurity Training

Details and instructions on SCU's Cybersecurity Training platform

Santa Clara University requires faculty & staff to complete Cybersecurity Training annually in order to comply with federal regulations such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), which applies to SCU because of our financial aid transactions. The Safeguards rule (part of GLBA) requires that we evaluate the risk to our systems, put in place controls that reasonably address those risks, and that employee training must be considered as one of those risk controls.
