This Information Security Awareness Essentials presentation is designed for all TRU Staff and Faculty and represents a key component of TRU's Information Security Program. This one hour interactive presentation was developed to ensure that all members of the TRU community are aware of Policies, Standards, and best practices related to the treatment of institutional information. The presentation is designed to build awareness, develop a common information security language, and to be entertaining. This presentation can be booked through the Information Security Office and requires a minimum of 10 participants.

Faculty are encouraged to include these sessions on their APAR.

Information Security Awareness Essentials II - "Policies & Standards"

This slightly shorter session is designed as a refresher and to provide a deeper look at TRU's information security policies and standards. Any changes to information security practices at TRU will be covered in annual revisions of this presentation. It is recommended that all staff and faculty attend Information Security Awareness Essentials I first to build an understanding of basic concepts.

Information Security Awareness Essentials III - "Privacy & Compliance"

The British Columbia Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), is one of the most stringent privacy laws in Canada and has recently been updated to include several new regulations. This session introduces basic privacy concepts and the most significant regulations affecting the treatment of Personal Information at the University. Basic Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standards compliance requirements are also introduced and a review of materials covered in ISAE sessions I & II is included.
