The video series “Information Security and You: Learn. Know. Protect.” is available to all Penn State students, faculty, and staff, by Security Operations and Services (SOS), a unit of Penn State Information Technology Services (ITS). These online educational videos are provided to the Penn State community through a series produced by The SANS Institute, a cooperative research and education organization. Established in 1989, the SANS Institute develops security-training programs that reach more than 165,000 system and security professionals around the world.
The videos have been designed to provide quick, effective awareness messages about a variety of information security-focused topics, such as creating strong passwords, using social media tools more safely, wireless security, smartphone/handheld security, as well as policies and laws. The videos are not intended to replace training programs or course work, but are meant to serve as a supplemental educational resource, as well as foster broader information technology security awareness across the University.
The videos are housed in ANGEL to help faculty members and instructors easily reference them in their respective courses. Options and instructions for using the videos with a course or group are found in the ITS KB article at http://kb.its.psu.edu/article/1672/.
Inquiries and requests for assistance should first be directed to the ITS Help Desk staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
