2024-2025 Security Awareness Training

We all play an essential role in securing Elon University’s sensitive information. As the Elon community continues to expand its cyber reach to business partners and service providers, risks concerning unauthorized data access continue to grow. As a result, every Elon employee is required to take information security awareness training each academic year.

To ensure all eligible employees meet their awareness training requirement, we are offering the following opportunities during the 2024-2025 academic year that will satisfy your training requirement:


Sessions are scheduled and announced monthly through the Office of Leadership and Professional Development (OLPD). Our 2024-2025 instructor-led sessions include “It’s All About The Data“, “LastPass Workshop“, and “Phishing; Just How Bad Is It?“.


On-demand content is also available in Moodle and can be accessed by logging into our Information Security Course.  If you choose this method you are required to complete at least one learning path and the training confirmation form. Please read the guidelines on our Moodle site for more information about meeting your requirement through on-demand learning.

Customized Group Sessions

These are specialized awareness trainings that can be requested during department meetings which contain an information security component and customized, security-focused group meetings. If you would like customized group training for your department, please email us at infosec@elon.edu.

Training Opportunities

Throughout the year, Information Security will run training activities that will likely include:

  • A Digital Scavenger Hunt (Just Released!)
  • Cybersecurity Awareness Month Challenge (Coming in October 2024)
  • A March Madness Challenge (Available in March 2025)

Though these activities can be completed by individuals, they are more suited for group activities and team building opportunities. Please email us at infosec@elon.edu if you want to schedule a team awareness activity.
