Information Systems Security Awareness (ISSA)

IHS has developed the following modules in accordance with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines on information technology security awareness and training.

All IHS information system users must take annual security and privacy training in order to fulfill federal mandates and regulations. In addition, all new users must successfully complete this course within 24 hours of receiving access unless the user has read the IHS Quick Guide to Information Security [PDF - 868KB], in which case they will have 30 days to complete the training. Failure to complete training requirements will result in the loss of information systems access.
