Privacy & Information Security Training

Summary

This training is required for all employees (full, part-time, and student), regardless of whether they need "expanded computer access" (i.e. access to CX/Jenzabar, iSeries, faculty webpages, etc.). In general, the training deals with "information privacy" laws and the university's applicable policies. (Please note: This training must be completed before an employee can receive "expanded access" to university computer systems.)

Access

New Employees: New employees (including student employees) will receive an email within 24 hours of being hired, asking them to take the training. (Instructions will be included with the email.) On-Going Employees: Current/on-going employees (full, part-time, and student) can access the Privacy Training through their "mybyui" account on the BYU-Idaho homepage.

Expanded Access

If an employee needs "expanded access" to special computer systems on campus (i.e. iSeries, Jenzabar [CX], Faculty webpage, etc.), a supervisor will log-in to "mybyui" and click on the following links:
  • Click on the "employee" tab
  • Click on the link entitled "Supervisor Request for Special System Access"
  • Provide the necessary information
PLEASE NOTE: Before a supervisor can grant expanded system access to an employee, that supervisor will need to be added to a database of authorized users. To be added to this database, please contact Patrick Powell in the HR office. Only one regular full-time employee per department (preferably a manager or director) will be able to grant access to special IT systems.

Questions or comments? If so, please contact the BYU-Idaho Support Center (ext. 1411) or contact Patrick Powell in Human Resources (ext. 1709).
