FEMA Releases New Workplace Security Awareness Online Course


April 5, 2011


IS-906 - Workplace Security Awareness

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released a new online, independent study course on Workplace Security.

Course Description

This course provides guidance to individuals and organizations on how to improve the security in your workplace. No workplace—be it an office building, construction site, factory floor, or retail store—is immune from security threats.

Employees are often the target of these threats as well as the organization's first line of defense against them. Threats endanger the confidentiality, integrity, and security of your workplace, as well as your virtual workplace and computer systems. This course presents information on how employees can contribute to your organization's security.

Course Objectives

Upon completing this course, the participant will be able to:

  1. Identify potential risks to workplace security.
  2. Describe measures for improving workplace security.
  3. Determine the actions to take in response to a security situation

Primary Audience

All private-sector and public-sector employees.




EMI awards 0.1 CEUs for completion of this course.

Course Length

The overall length of the course will vary for each individual. IS-906 takes approximately 1 hour to complete.

IS-906, Workplace Security Awarness, can be found online at FEMA's Emergency Management Institute.
