Security Awareness and Training platform

The SAT platform delivers course-based training courses, phishing simulations and evaluations that strengthen users’ cyber security skills by combining ORION’s community focused information security approach with CIRA’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform.

Note: Only onboarded users can access the platform at this time.

Types of training included:

  1. Phishing simulations: This training provides U of T staff, librarians and faculty with the information they need to detect potential phishing attacks and take appropriate actions to protect themselves against phishing.
  2. Essential security and privacy courses: Curated content that covers information security topics such as data classification, privacy and security best practices.
