Some Postal Service employees are required to complete a new four-part cybersecurity training course by March 31.
The course is mandatory for business system owners — employees who are “functional coordinators” for various USPS systems, such as the Time and Attendance Collection System or VPN Access to USPS.
The CyberSafe at USPS team introduced the course to help these employees learn how to secure data and manage operations.
The one-hour course consists of four 15-minute parts:
- Cyber Landscape (course number 10026229): Highlights cybersecurity threats to USPS information and systems
- Data, Data Security and Data Auditing (10026228): Provides guidelines to ensure confidentiality and integrity of information processed by USPS applications
- Operations Management and Risk (10026227): Highlights how to implement protection requirements for USPS information resources
- System Resiliency and Disaster Recovery (10026201): Demonstrates how effective recovery planning can help to identify and mitigate threats
Business system owners with active ACE IDs are required to complete all four parts to receive full learning credit.
Incomplete courses will result in limited ACE system access until the four parts are completed.
