Security Awareness Training Instructions

Every year all TCNJ employees must participate in Security Awareness Training. This year TCNJ implemented a new Security Awareness Training platform. The training modules are a little more interactive than the previous training videos, and the training platform allows us to test our cybersecurity skills with simulated phishing attacks. 

The College considers information to be a strategic asset that is essential to its core mission and business operations.  The College also values the privacy of individuals and is dedicated to protecting the information with which it is entrusted.  The College is committed to providing the resources needed to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of its information as well as reduce the risk of exposure that would damage the reputation of the College.

KnowBe4 is the company that provides our new training platform. When training opens all employees will receive an email from with a unique link to the training portal. Copy and paste the link into a browser and click Start Course to begin the course. A new window will open with the interactive training module. There is audio, so make sure your headphones or speakers are turned on.
