Security Awareness Program

Under the provisions of the Massachusetts data security law and regulations (201 CMR 17.00) the College is required to provide security awareness to all employees. The awareness program focuses on the protection of PII (personally identifiable information) as well as the handling of College-sensitive data and the protection of accounts, passwords, computers, and networks.

We offer online resources for security awareness through KnowBe4. The informational materials consist of videos with voice over and captions. New employees will receive an email invitation to participate in the program and should complete participation within two weeks of the first day at work, based on the start date provided in the "New Employee/Special Non-Employee or Position Change IT Checklist" form submittted by the department. Employees who change positions will receive an email invitation to participate as needed, after discussion with the new department.
