Stay safe — public information film

An information film that provides advice on the steps to take to keep safe in the event of a firearms or weapons attack is available to the public.

The University has taken the decision to highlight this guidance to staff and students in light of the national threat level – which remains at ‘severe’ in the UK. However, it must be stressed that this is not in response to any particular or specific threat to the city or the University. All UK police forces have been asked to share with partner agencies and large organisations.

You can read the full message from Dr Paul Greatrix, Registrar and Chair of the Incident Management Team on Campus News.

 

Cyber attacks target Universities

Following last month’s cyber-attack that threatened NHS computer systems, more recently the BBC reported that a University had been hit by a similar cyber-attack.

We would advise all University staff and students to be extremely vigilant regarding potential ‘phishing’ emails or suspicious attachments.

Visit The Digital Network blog for advice and information on how to spot scam emails and phishing attempts.
