Information security awareness training: January 2024

January 30th, 2024

To help us all to protect the data we handle, we are continuing our compulsory Data Protection and Information Security awareness training for all UK-based staff.

UK Universities continue to face significant Data Protection and Cyber Security threats. As part of keeping our data safe, we want to make sure you’re made aware of the role you play in protecting our data. Annual awareness training for staff plays an essential part of making sure we maintain a good level of awareness.

It is an expectation of the UK Regulatory Authority (the ICO) and is mandated by key research partners.

There are two modules, one focused on Data Protection, and a second with a focus on Cyber security. The total viewing time is approximately 20 minutes, depending on how much you already know about the subject.

Each topic will help you understand your role in protecting our data, and the regulations which govern the way we handle data within the university.

The modules can be watched separately or together, and each section ends with a formative quiz.

The training is compulsory for all staff at our UK campuses to complete and the modules are available on central short courses. Staff are required to complete this compulsory training by no later than end of March 2024.

To take part in the training,  please follow this link.
