Information security

A SURF campaign was launched in the academic year 2021-2022 to raise awareness of information security among staff and students.

The IT department does everything it can to protect the VU community from cybercrime, but when it comes to maintaining our defenses the university’s employees and students are vital links. How well informed are we when it comes to information security, and do we act accordingly? We can bolt the door, but if someone accidentally leaves a window open, cybercriminals will find a way in. And we may not even notice anything.

This academic year (2021-2022) the Cyber Security team are therefore giving extra attention to awareness around information security. This is so that we can better guarantee the safety of data at our university, now and  in the future. The purpose of increased awareness is to help employees and students to make safer choices. We will highlight a different theme each time: from password use and data storage to phishing and account sharing.
