Most cases of compromised data are the result of unintentional actions, or inactions, and can be prevented by following good information security practices. Compromised data can result in major security breaches that damage work, careers and reputations, and are expensive to repair. Information security is everyone's responsibility.
To inform everyone about threats to information security and good practices to reduce the risks associated with those threats, UC Davis has adopted a mandatory online Cyber Security Awareness course which must be completed on an annual basis. The course is composed of several video modules covering a number of important information security topics. To access the course module, you may visit sdps.ucdavis.edu.
All UC Davis employees are expected to conduct work in accordance with the University of California Statement of Ethical Values and Standards of Ethical Conduct and are required to complete a systemwide ethics briefing every two years. We offer a general briefing on ethics through the Learning Management System (LMS) to help you understand the parameters within which we all must operate as stewards of a public institution.
