IT Policy Update and Phishing Challenge Competition

2 Nov 2017

In 2016/17 IT Services undertook a review of IT Policies.   Please familiarise yourself with these policies.  You will find a summary of each policy and a direct link to the policy content here:  

Updated policies are available here: Acceptable Usage Policy,  IT Security Policy and Web and Social Media Policy.  A new overarching IT Framework Policy  outlines processes, breach protocols and monitoring common to all policies.

Phishing Challenge

Last month IT Services rolled out a new product to further protect our email (Trend Micro Could App Security) intercepting ransomware and targeted fraudulent emails, amongst other threats, which a traditional security defence may miss. 

UCC will continue to be under attack as the potential yield of UCC funds or UCC data for a cybercriminal is high.  Each email user in the UCC community has a role to play in protecting UCC and user vigilance is our greatest defence.

Take our Anti-Phishing Challenge to learn some key tips on how to stay savvy to scam emails and be in with a chance of winning an Dell Chromebook!!  

The short quiz and further information about IT Security can be found at:

The Anti-Phishing Challenge should be carried out on a desktop or laptop.   

The winner will be announced in two weeks - Good Luck!
