What should I know about the C&IT Security Awareness Program?

What is C&IT Security Awareness training?

C&IT is working with SANS to increase Wayne State University employee IT security awareness and knowledge, and to help maintain the privacy and security of university and personal data. Creating a secure environment is a group effort, and this training is one small part.



How can I take the training?

The C&IT Security Awareness Program is currently available to Banner users across campus. Participants receive an email directly from SANS with details.

If you are interested in taking part in the training and are not a Banner user, contact garrett.mcmanaway@wayne.edu

How do I enable pop-ups to view training videos?

The Security Awareness Program training requires you to enable pop-ups in your web browser. Follow the steps below for each major web browser:


  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Safari:
    • From the Safari menu, choose Preferences... and click the Security tab.
    • Ensure the Block pop-up windows option is not checked. Unchecking this option will allow pop-ups.
    • To block pop-ups once again, check the Block pop-up windows checkbox.
  • Microsoft Edge

What happens after I take training and get certified?

C&IT will record that you have completed the training, and that you are certified in IT security awareness. You will also receive a certificate of completion.


What if I have suggestions or feedback?

A survey will be sent to participants at a later date.
