  1. I received a Data Security training assignment. Do I need to complete it? Yes, all employee using CSU Chico informational resources (e.g. email address) are required to complete the training.
  2. This training used to be assigned every 3 years. Why was it assigned again? Employees working with sensitive electronic data (Level 1 Data) are required to complete the training annually. All other employees are required to complete the training every 3 years.
  3. I received a notification my training was waived. What does that mean? If you have completed a different security related training your Data Security Training maybe waived by ISEC. Your training may also be waived if you have transitioned from non-L1 to L-1 Data position and you have previously completed Data Security within the current training period.
