Security Awareness Tutorial

Welcome to S-A-F-E: Security Awareness for Everyone. This tutorial presents Information Protection and Systems Security (IPASS) basics.  Each staff member (including employees, contractors, visiting fellows, guest researches, volunteers, Commissioned Corps, and all others who perform work at CDC) is responsible for knowing the following related to Information Technology (IT): 

  • Terminology associated with IT resources and their protection
  • Systems vulnerabilities;
  • Actions to take to protect IT resources based on those vulnerabilities; and

Because IT resources are the agency’s life blood, spanning both public health and administrative information, and also represent the principal analytical tool and means of communication with colleagues and the American public, the following code of conduct is expected of all staff members.

  • Information provided by CDC to the public will be accurate;
  • The privacy of information given to CDC will be safeguarded; and
  • Information given to CDC will be used only for the purposes for which it was collected.

* Throughout the presentation, reference to CDC alone will be used to include both CDC and ATSDR.
