Welcome to the Online Information Security Training
This online training, for staff, aims to make you think about Information Security at Lancaster and how you (and your team) manage the information you use.
In this training we refer to information as electronic and paper based. Information security often focuses on keeping electronic information safe, but it is important to remember that some information is still on paper and this needs to be appropriately secured too.
Hopefully, after you have been through this training, you will be able to identify areas where you and your team could improve information security.
This online training will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete. It is recommended you set time aside to complete this training. If you need to return you can bookmark/add to favorites the page you are currently reading.
There is a short multiple choice assessment at the end of the training. To pass this assessment you will need to achieve 80% or more. Successful completion of this test is recorded on your staff development record on the HR system and acts as evidence of you having completed the course. If you do not pass first time, you can take the assessment as many times as you like (although the questions will be different as they are pulled from a question bank).
