Compliance and Regulatory Training

Training Modules

Electronic Data Protection

The university continually develops, maintains, and improves its information technology infrastructure and applications to support the creation, storage, modification, and sharing of data. These IT systems are essential to the operation of the university. The university, therefore, has a responsibility to institute appropriate safeguards to keep its IT systems and information assets secure. In addition, the university must comply with various regulatory requirements that are also designed to keep certain types of data secure and confidential.

The security of IT systems and information assets is dependent on the individuals managing as well as the individuals utilizing such resources. The university is committed to supporting the principles of academic freedom and the free exchange of ideas. The university's information security policies and programs are intended to support those principles while still maintaining an appropriate level of security.

This course will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. You will be asked to review the Electronic Email Policy and acknowledge that you understand the policy and procedure prior to successful completion.

In this course, we will learn:

  1. The legal and regulatory requirements to protect University Information.
  2. How to mitigate the risk posed by phishing emails.
  3. The rules and regulations outlined in Electronic Mail Policy 12006.

Campus Emergency Alert Training

The University of Missouri System is committed to providing a safe and secure working and learning environment for our faculty, staff and students. Each of the four universities of the UM System has a number of safety programs, and one of the most effective programs at each university is the emergency alert system. Emergency alert systems are used to notify the campus community when there is an emergency situation, including criminal threats and/or natural disasters. This course covers basic information about the emergency alert system at each university, and provides insight on how one might respond in emergency situations. The training takes about fifteen minutes to complete; there is no mastery test associated with this module. Access the training by logging into myLearn.
