A reminder that all staff are required to complete a short, refreshed training course by the end of next week (Friday, 27 January)

University of Manchester

New online Data Protection & Cyber Security training is now available for all staff to complete.   

This mandatory training refreshes people’s understanding of data protection law and provides some cyber security best practice awareness.  

How do I access the course?

For details of how to access the course please visit Information Governance Office Training and Support.   

Does everyone need to do this training?

Yes, regardless of when you did the previous course you must complete the new training by Friday, 27 January 2023.  

Why do I need to do this training?

We are all responsible for protecting personal data that individuals have entrusted to the University and information that’s confidential in nature. 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.
