INFORMATION SECURITY TRAINING

We can’t depend on technical solutions alone to secure our systems and valuable data. People are still the first line of defence against malicious attacks, so ongoing training and awareness are critical. 

What we offer

Information security training empowers individuals to make better decisions, not only in how to recognise and respond to potential cyber-attacks, but also to be sure they aren’t inadvertently putting data at risk in their day-to-day work.

The Information Security Team can draw on its broad expertise to provide training and awareness tailored to your needs. This could be a general security awareness presentation to your whole team, or a more detailed one-to-one session to address a specific situation. Information security training is the cornerstone of a balanced programme of protective measures.

Benefits for you

  • Help people recognise and respond to potential cyber-attacks, phishing and social engineering attempts.
  • Protect our staff and students by ensuring teams have up-to-date knowledge about how to handle personal data.
  • Reduce the number of security incidents by sharing best practices.
  • Help embed information security in day-to-day activities.

  • Group sessions covering the essentials of information security.
  • Detailed one-to-one guidance on specific security topics.
