Education

Information security education focuses on addressing the weakest link in the quest for a secure environment-people. In today's helter-skelter world of online interactions, transactions and distractions, the risk of information security threats is more widespread than ever, and all it takes is one wrong click or one unattended computer to put yourself and the university at risk.

Our education empowers users to learn how to use the Internet safely and securely at work, school and home. Use the resources below to learn how to start protecting yourself and Florida State.
