Why it's important
IT security risk is as much a human issue as it is a technology issue. UCSF employees who manage IT systems or develop software need to have the necessary skills to carry out their duties effectively and securely. The Advanced IT Security Training now available on the UCSF Learning Management System provides technical training to help improve employees' knowledge and skillsets to protect UCSF’s electronic assets.
What we offer
To ensure the training covered all of the critical control areas, we mapped courses to the CIS Controls for Effective Cyber Defense, a recommended set of security controls that provide specific and actionable ways to stop today's most pervasive and dangerous attacks (see PDF below). The controls are (1) derived from the most common attack patterns highlighted in the leading threat reports and (2) vetted across a very broad community of government and industry practitioners.
Please use this table (see the first PDF below) to identify courses to enhance your skills within different control areas. In addition, we've included course descriptions for the mapped courses (see the second PDF).
There are also courses that prepare you to pass professional certifications that can enhance your career. Examples include training for the CISSP, CompTIA A+ and various Oracle, Cisco and VMware certifications.
