Welcome to Information Security Awareness (ISA) for FY2008. IHS has developed the following modules in accordance with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines on information security awareness and information security training. All IHS information system users must take annual security awareness in order to fulfill Federal mandates and regulations. In addition, all new users must successfully complete these modules within 24 hours of receiving access unless the user has read the HHS Quick Guide to Information Security in which case they will have 30 days to complete the training. Failure to adequately complete these awareness modules will result in the loss of information systems access.

These modules fulfill an IHS user’s annual requirements for the following:
  • Information security awareness
  • General incident response training
  • Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) awareness
  • Privacy Act training
  • HIPAA Privacy Rule training
  • Acknowledgement of acceptance of the IHS Rules of Behavior (RoB)
    The site administrator has set the maximum number of concurrently users to 250. The current number of users is 20 and does not exceed the maximum set by the administrator.
