Important - Please Complete Security Awareness Training

Security Awareness Training Update:


Only 52% of employees have completed the fall 2020 training that was launched in November.

As many of us continue to work remotely, security awareness training is more important than ever. Every day there are Phishing messages being sent to SUNY accounts, including dangerous ones that attempt to divert our Direct Deposit paychecks to other accounts.

New York State and SUNY require all employees to complete Security Awareness training. Purchase College uses an online system called KnowBe4 to deliver that training. Training is conducted in both the fall and the spring semesters.

The fall training campaign consists of two short videos and one series of questions in an assessment that is designed to improve the relevance of future security training.

If you have not completed the November 2020 training, please go directly to the KnowBe4 website to begin the training. A link to the training also appears in the “Quick Links” section of the Faculty/Staff Portal page.

If you have any trouble accessing the system, please contact the Helpdesk via Zoom Video Chat Tech Support Mon-Fri 8am-4:45pm, or dial +1 646 876 9923, Meeting ID: 914 251 6465 - or create a work request so we can assist.

Please help us protect Purchase College and protect yourself – complete the training.
