This spring, a new cybersecurity training tool (Beauceron) is being launched to UNB faculty and staff as part of UNB’s Cybersecurity Program.

Available to the university at no cost, this cybersecurity awareness training is designed to educate you on the cybersecurity threats UNB faces so you’re better equipped to protect yourself, UNB and its data from these threats.

Information Sessions

All faculty and staff are invited to attend an information session to learn more about the cybersecurity training and the role we all play in cybersecurity at UNB.

What does the training involve?

The training consists of four modules with a few short surveys and quizzes. Each module takes about 10 minutes to complete. This can be done all at once or in multiple sittings – whatever works best with your schedule. You can start and stop at any point then pick up where you left off at a later time.
