Opening event: How the Pandemic has shaped the landscape
Join us for the start of awareness week where we will discuss how the last year has changed the Information Security Landscape and the impact that has had at the University.
Security Round Table
This conversational session brings physical security, digital safety and information security around a virtual table to discuss the differences in their roles and the issues they have in common.
Come along with your preferred hot beverage and drop a question to our panel.
Security, Cost and Convenience
An often overlooked element of Security is that it has to work in balance with everything else. Information being worthless if nobody can access or use it, how do we manage the need to keep it safe against that need for access. In this session we will dig deeper into this tension and explore the relationship between Security, Cost and Convenience.
Scams and Fraud - a talk with Finance and EUSA
Scams are a threat in all parts of our lives, impacting people, businesses and even governments. In this session we invite speakers from University Finance and the EUSA Advice place to discuss scams they have seen and how we can better protect ourselves against them.
Information security - know the basics
An introductory session on what information security is, why its matters and our top ten tips to secure your data at the University, and at home.
Digital Safety and Citizenship
From Dr Vicki Madden, this session explores the concept of digital safety, what it means and how we can be better, safer digital citizens.
Coffee and Security
This round table style session will provoke discussion on topics within information security, with guest speakers including some of our own Information Security Champions
Crime Prevention and Security at the University
Neil Doig talks us through the role of Security at the University and their wider role within crime prevention. Do you know who to call if you see a crime on campus? Have you ever wanted to get your biked marked to deter theft? Have you ever wondered how the University engages with the police when things go wrong? Neil has the answers and more besides.
From the Data Protection Office: A basic introduction to the world of Data Protection and its role within the University of Edinburgh. Followed by a Q&A.
Ethics in security and data privacy
Are government departments right to use facial recognition software in public areas without consent? How do we monitor the actions of artificial intelligence? What privacy would you sacrifice for greater security? Some guest speakers discuss these questions in this session looking at the ethical issues we face in society today.
Catch the Phish
Whats a hackers favourite hobby? Phishing. In this session we look at common scam emails from real life and the clues that give them away. You then act as a security professional by guessing which real life examples are phishing, and which are legitimate! Don't get caught!
A wrap up of the events of the week and a look further ahead into what the future holds for Information Security, for the University and for Higher Education as a whole.
Have you ever wanted to get into the shoes of a Chief Information Security Officer? To hold the budget. To make the tough choices. To foil those that would break into your network. Come get a taste of the big decisions in this simulated experience, deciding the path the company takes and whether they survive the oncoming storm, or fall apart at the seams.
