Action Required: Information Privacy and Security Training
As a reminder, everyone who works, learns or volunteers at OHSU must complete this training, as required by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The April 9 deadline has passed, so please make every effort to complete the training as soon as possible. Eventually not completing the course will unfortunately lead to deactivated network access, badge access, and overall status with OHSU/OVV. OHSU and OVV do not want to see that happen, so please don't delay.
Complete the training online
The Information Privacy and Security Essentials course takes approximately one hour to complete. It is hosted online in OHSU's learning management system, Compass. After logging in, you will find a link to the course under "My Assigned Training" on your homepage. For the best experience, it's recommended that you use Internet Explorer and complete the
training in one sitting. Be aware that the first of the training modules takes the longest —the subsequent modules are much shorter. Also, please disable your browser's popup blocker, or remember to allow popups when prompted.
If you have questions
If you have questions about the training, please contact the Office of Visitors & Volunteers: OVV@ohsu.edu or 503-418-0799. Thank you in advance for completing the Information Privacy and Security Essentials course. And, thank you for volunteering and visiting at OHSU, we are so grateful for your contributions and commitment!
In case you missed it - Integrity Booster 2018 was required by Feb. 28:
Along with all OHSU employees and students, all OHSU visitors and volunteers were required to complete the 2018 Integrity Booster course by Feb. 28, 2018. This annual training helps OHSU meet legally mandated education requirements as well as other institutional obligations. Additionally, each year's booster provides you and your staff the means and resources to maintain OHSU's culture of ethics and integrity. Like the Information Privacy &Security training, you can access the Integrity Booster 2018 by logging into the O2, and follow links to Compass. It should be assigned to you, but can be searched in the top right-hand search field. Questions about the Integrity Booster? Contact the Integrity Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you use OHSU Web-mail (www.ohsu.edu/mail)? If so...
Effective March 1, 2018 two-step authentication will be required when logging in to mail.ohsu.edu from outside the OHSU network — for example, while connected to your home network or a public Wi-Fi network such as OHSU-Guest, Eduroam or the ones available from popular places like coffee shops, hotels or airports.
This extra layer of security is called two-step, or multi-factor, authentication. You might already be familiar with the concept — it's used by Google, Twitter, Facebook, Apple, Instagram, Amazon and many banks, but you typically have to enable it yourself. It's also required by many leading educational institutions, including Duke, Stanford, Virginia Tech, Boston University, Princeton and Yale.
By adding two-step authentication to Outlook Web Access, remote attackers won't be able to log in as you — even if they somehow obtained your OHSU username and password.
What you need to do:
Protect your login — enroll in Duo before Thursday, March 1. Just follow the step-by-step instructions, which include an overview video.
Outlook Web Access (www.ohsu.edu/mail) is the first of several systems to which two-step authentication will apply. Eventually, two-step authentication will be required for remote access to additional OHSU systems, such as Citrix and Oracle. More information will be provided as it becomes available in the coming months.
