Why do I need this training?

As part of the on-going activity to keep the University safe from the threat of cyber-attacks, it is strongly recommended that all staff and PGRs complete the training courses.

 

How do I complete the training?

To complete the training courses, please go to the online training portal. You may be prompted for your University login (username and password).

If you need to share the training link with a colleague, please use: https://go.soton.ac.uk/it/cybertraining.

 

What training courses do I need to complete?

The University strongly recommends that all staff and PGRs complete the following 30 minute courses on:

  • Email security and phishing: how to spot phishing emails and scams such as Amazon or iTunes gift card scams. You'll also learn how to tell whether someone is impersonating your manager or another senior member of staff in order to ask you to do something unusual.
  • Working securely away from campus: how to stay secure when you're working off-campus. You'll learn how to protect your home computer and your personal cloud accounts as well.

 

Staff and PGRs are also encouraged to complete a longer course which teaches you how to protect yourself, your devices and University information:

  • Information security awareness: covers 29 topics including how to choose strong passwords, understanding ransomware and malware, the risks of social engineering, access control basics and identify theft. This course will take you between 2.5 and 3 hours to complete.

 

I’m having issues logging into the training portal, what do I need to do?

Please make sure you are using the correct link to complete the training. The link should recognise your University account and take you to the portal directly. If the link doesn’t recognise your account, you may be prompted to enter your University login (username and password). Please enter your details and the page should re-direct you to the portal.
