Information security awareness training

July 23rd, 2018

As cyberattacks become more frequent, hackers get more sophisticated, and identify theft is on the rise, we’re introducing compulsory information security awareness training for all staff.

This will help us all be more confident that we are handling sensitive information securely, and help us protect the personal data which our staff, our students, and our research participants trust us with.

Can you spot a phishing email? Do you know what personal data is? Do you know how to browse the internet is a safe way?

The first set of training modules cover safe internet usage, phishing emails, and GDPR.

The total viewing time is about 15 minutes: The modules can be watched separately or together, and each ends with a short test. Completion of all of these modules is compulsory for staff at our UK campuses.

The link to the training modules will be emailed to you after the summer graduations have ended. You’ll receive the you from “UoN Information Security” ( and the link within the email will take you to a website hosted by our external provider, where it will generate a record that you have received the email, accessed the link and completed the training.
