Stanford Information Security Academy
Stanford Information Security Academy (SISA) supports the ongoing professional growth of our system administrators and web developers.
2017 - 2018 Courses
The mission of SISA is to develop cybersecurity expertise among Stanford's system administrators and web developers in appreciation of the critical role they play in protecting our systems and data. At the foundation of SISA is a set of half-day classroom courses offered quarterly and free of charge. The Information Security I course is a prerequisite for the other classes offered.

System administrators and web developers will be asked to attend at least one training class annually, beginning with Information Security I, followed by other courses. Completion of at least one training class each calendar year will satisfy the annual training expectation while supporting the professional development of these key staff. Participants can attend more than one course if so inclined and will have the option of progressing to increasingly advanced and varied training each year.
SISA will extend beyond the core classes, with periodic suggested readings sent to participants, communities of practice, brown bag sessions, continuing education recommendations, and additional training opportunities. Our hope is that participants will gain and maintain an information security mindset, employing cybersecurity best practices in their work and fully utilizing the many security resources provided by Stanford.
