ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (Including UCSD Healthcare)
Computer security continues to be an important issue for all of us at UCSD. If you use a computer in any capacity whatsoever, it is critical that you understand the security measures you must take on a daily basis to prevent "intruders" from breaking into your system, and to protect University data. We are encouraging everyone to take the online training course entitled Computer Security Basics, which is available from Blink's Enrollment Central: http://blink.ucsd.edu/ec/computersecurity.
In this tutorial, you will learn about your responsibilities as a UCSD computer user, the best practices to observe whenever using your computer, and the policies and laws that govern your actions. The tutorial takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, including a ten question quiz on the material covered. A certificate of completion will be displayed after you have successfully completed the course, and your course completion will be recorded on your Enrollment Central Training History.
This tutorial is now a pre-requisite to obtaining a User ID for campus business systems. Anyone who already has a User ID and is accessing campus systems is highly encouraged to complete this course as well.
