Option 1: Security Awareness Hub

Why take the course on the Security Awareness Hub site?

If you are an occasional user of CDSE courses (e.g. once a year mandatory training) we recommend that you take the course via the Security Awareness Hub website. No registration or sign-in is required. When you select the Identifying and Safeguarding Personally Identifiable Information (PII) Version 2.0 link it will open up the web page. Click on the Launch Course button.

NOTE: By taking the course through the Security Awareness Hub, there is no record of course completion maintained by CDSE.

Option 2: CDSE STEPP System

Why take the course through STEPP?

If you are a regular user of CDSE courses it is recommended that you register for the course through STEPP, particularly if this is a prerequisite course or part of a curriculum. STEPP is the CDSE's Learning Management System portal for all its security courses. Taking the course through STEPP ensures your course completion is recorded on your student transcript. This can then be used as proof of completion for requesting ACE Credits or Continuing Education Units.
