Privacy and Data Security Training

Privacy and Data Security Training

The University of Minnesota’s Privacy and Data Security Training program is the educational component developed at the University to comply with HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996) regulations. Although the University’s data security training courses fulfill the training requirement contained within the HIPAA rule, they also provide the entire University community, including those who do not work with protected health information covered by HIPAA, with information about securing private University data.

The training program consists of individual courses that University employees, students, and volunteers complete online. Individuals who are assigned training receive an e-mail notification containing details about accessing the assigned training. See the About Training page for more information about the courses offered. Additional information about training can be found through the links listed to the right. Individuals can also contact the Health Information Privacy and Security Office at privacy@umn.edu or 612-624-7447 for assistance.

How to Access Training

Assigned courses are available for completion at any time through the University’s myU portal. See the Training Instructions page for step-by-step instructions.

Alternative formats for training materials are available. Please contact the Health Information Privacy and Security Office at privacy@umn.edu or 612-624-7447 to obtain materials in an alternate format.
