  • Information Security & Privacy Refresher Course

    In March, all UIF system users whose accounts had been active for 1 year or longer received an iLearn refresher course on Information Security and Privacy. This required, annual refresher course provides information about the most recent laws and ways to keep our data safe. You must complete the course by June 10.  Beginning May 27, automatic reminder emails will be sent to those who have not yet completed the course. If you do not complete the course by June 10, your account will be disabled. To be re-enabled, you will be required to complete a new access form.  Thank you for respecting our donors and constituents by helping us maintain the privacy and the security of their information.
