Fall Security Awareness Training

Fall Security Awareness Training

Federal regulations, State laws and/or campus policy require that all employees participate in mandatory compliance training, including Security Awareness Training. Purchase College uses an online platform called KnowBe4 to deliver Security Awareness Training in both the fall and the spring semesters.

Nation-state sponsored Phishing and Ransomware have reached epidemic proportions - and they are a serious threat to Purchase College - making this training more important than ever.

On Monday September 5th you will receive a notification from the KnowBe4 system inviting you to begin your Fall 2022 Security Awareness Training. The email invitation comes from “” with the subject line “Fall 2022 Security Awareness Training.” You must complete this training by September 23rd.

This training consists of a series of short videos (most are 2 minutes) with questions that address the most important threats we face in our daily interactions online. The total time required is 30 minutes. Training does not need to be completed in one sitting, you can return later and pick up where you left off.

You can also use this link to the KnowBe4 Login Page to begin the training starting September 5th. A link to the training also appears in the “Quick Links” section of the Faculty/Staff Portal page.

If you have not completed the spring 2022 training, it is still sitting there waiting for you. You can go directly to the KnowBe4 site to complete any Past Due training you may have today - you don’t have to wait to catch up.

This training is required for all employees.

A link to the training also appears in the “Quick Links” section of the Faculty/Staff Portal page.

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

Always think before you click!
