Information Security & Data Protection online training

We are all responsible for protecting the personal data that individuals have entrusted to the University. Failure to do so can result in significant harm and distress to the individuals whose data we hold, lead to reputational damage to the University and regulatory fines. 

There is an ever-present risk that any one of us could become the victim of a cyber-attack. There are many simple but important steps outlined in the training that you can take to help keep your information, and University systems, safe and secure.

The mandatory Data Protection & Cyber Security course (LAOD152) (refreshed and launched on the 11th October 2022) is available on Blackboard. All staff are required to complete this training.

New Starters are automatically enrolled to a bundle of essential courses which includes Data Protection & Cyber Security course, information on accessing this course and other frequently asked questions can be found on the Information Governance Office Training and Support page.
