IT Security Training

At the University of Aberdeen, you are expected to complete our Information Security Awareness course on iDEA. The course consists of five modules: Cyber Security, Digital Ethics, E-Safety, Safe Online and Social Media Ethics. Each module takes a maximum of ten minutes to complete and awards you a digital badge that you can use across multiple platforms including LinkedIn.

IT’s your responsibility

Did you know that in most IT incidents, user error or unthinking behaviour has been a major contributing factor? IT security is 10% technology, 90% people and processes.

Find out how to protect your user identity, personal data, devices, and PC, and about the part you play in helping to keep the University’s data and systems safe.

We are ALL responsible for IT Security.
