Employee Cybersecurity Awareness Badge


For specific departments and individuals, UMBC provides a training program administered by the Division of Information Technology. These training modules help us to fulfill federal and state audit requirements, and provide good general knowledge on information about a variety of topics in information technology security. Our testing has shown these hand-picked topics to be timely, relevant, and informative.

The training modules are delivered on our campus LMS:  Blackboard.  These training modules vary in length, averaging about 15 minutes each.  They may be started and stopped at any time, and do not have to be all completed in one sitting.  At the end, there is a short assessment; its completion satisfies our audit requirements and grants you the Employee Cybersecurity Awareness badge issued by Credly.  If you believe you should be assigned this training, please contact your supervisor or
