SANS – Securing the Human Training Program

Information security is critical to the life of San Jacinto College. Each day, threats are committed against institutions of higher education. It is important for college employees to learn how to protect their computers, their network accounts, and their data by taking a security awareness course online.
As part of the College’s efforts to address the increasing threats to the security of our information systems and data, all full-time San Jacinto College employees are now required to take the “Securing the Human” training course. Securing the Human is an online security awareness program created by the SANS Institute. The program has been designed to not only inform employees of their responsibilities as members of the San Jacinto College community, but to also assist them in securing their information at home. The short and informative videos cover HIPAA and FERPA standards as well as important topics such as Email & Messaging and Data Security.
The following SANS online training sessions are now available in Cornerstone:

Module 1 covers topics such as email, browsing the web, passwords, data security, and working remotely. Module 2 will discuss ways on how to protect your personal computer and home network and review FERPA standards. Module 3 will inform you about the cloud, data retention, and social security numbers.
Please log into Cornerstone to access the training modules listed above. At the end of each video, you will be asked to take a test and once completed successfully, you will be able to move on to the next video. Employees will receive a certificate when the modules have been completed.

For assistance with login usernames, passwords and course registration, please contact the Cornerstone Support Team at, extension 6387 or (281) 998-6387. Also see the Cornerstone User Quick Reference for more information.
