At the recent UAS conference our Oxford Networks Security team offered visitors to their display stand the opportunity to test their password strength. Oxford colleagues jumped at the chance to type their password into the computer offered by charming and engaging IT staff.
Never give your password to someone else. Ever.
We offer courses on Security and privacy online and online guides aimed at University staff. Really, anyone using a personal computer, email, the cloud, or social media. The courses are not technical, they are for anyone , no need to be an expert in security or data protection. Encourage your friends and colleagues to attend, because the data they lose may be yours.
The conference itself was very interesting. Diversity seemed to be a big theme, with a number of sessions for discussion. The diversity of the attendees is captured in the photographs from the event.
