What is cybersecurity?
Everyone has a role in securing their part of cyberspace. Individual actions have a collective impact and when we use the internet safely, we make it more secure for everyone. Cybersecurity focuses on protecting computers, networks, programs and data, from unintended or unauthorized access, change or destruction.
Over the next few weeks, we will be providing you with valuable information to help you protect yourself and the University from increasing threats.
