Reminder: Cybersecurity Training

October 24, 2022

Please remember to take your Cybersecurity training by Nov. 3. October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month and employees have been asked to complete a short training module in KnowBe4, the State’s online training provider. 

All State employees will also be assigned new annual cybersecurity training modules to complete in February 2023, as part of DHR’s required annual training campaign. 

NOTE: Your login credentials are your ISU email address and a password that you would have originally created specifically for KnowBe4 (for previous years' training). As a State of Idaho training system, the KnowBe4 system is NOT connected to BengalWeb. Therefore, your email login may be your original 4x4 ISU email address, rather than your new firstnamelastname-format. If you have forgotten your password, it can be reset by selecting the "Forgot Your Password" option on the account login page, and following the prompts. 

In February the state Department of Human Resources will send out emails to all employees with annual training requirements, which are typically due for completion by the end of March, and must be completed to receive change in employee compensation (CEC) increases, should one be approved by the legislature. 

For new employees: New employees are assigned DHR cybersecurity training through an email directly from DHR the month following their hire. DHR requests new employees complete their cybersecurity training within 14 days of assignment.  As new annual and refresher training is assigned each year, new employees will also receive email prompts directly from DHR to complete additional modules on the same frequency as current employees.  

If you have any questions about this process, please contact training@isu.edu, or Clay at (208) 282-2519.  For any other questions regarding the State of Idaho Cybersecurity initiative or for assistance in logging into KnowBe4, please visit https://dhr.idaho.gov/trainings/cybersecurity/
