Cyber security has long been an area of activity for those providing, protecting and supporting services in research and education. For many years we have provided security products and services to help preserve the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the Janet network and everything on it. Over time the services we offer have evolved and grown to meet your changing needs and the different threats that we are all now seeing.  This Group aims to provide updates and articles about Jisc's security products and services as well as providing relevant news items and links about areas of security that affect Jisc members.

Information security policies training

You might be interested to know that Jisc have the following security-related courses coming up this Summer.

Computers, privacy and the law

19 July - 3 August 2016 

This online course provides an introduction to the privacy and legal issues that arise when designing and operating shared computers, networks and services.

Systems that do not respect users’ privacy are unlikely to be trusted: to avoid this organisations need to understand when their actions may be seen as invading privacy, reduce such actions as far as possible, and have a clear justification for those that remain.

The course uses situations that occur frequently in universities and colleges to discuss how to determine when privacy may be affected, when this may be necessary, and how it can be minimised. Attending the course should help you develop your own systems, processes and policies that respect privacy and provide reliable and trustworthy services.
