Information security awareness training

Security awareness training is an important part of our IT Security Program. The Essentials course is compulsory for all staff with a University computer account.

This course is designed to ensure everyone understands the risks around information security and their responsibilities. A longer advanced course will be rolled out later in the year for anyone who creates, processes or handles ‘classified’ information.
