New cyber security programme launched

CYBER SAFE: CPUT is launching a new programme to raise awareness about cyber safety. CYBER SAFE: CPUT is launching a new programme to raise awareness about cyber safety.

With cyber criminals becoming increasingly brazen, the CTS Department is launching a new cyber security awareness programme for staff members this month.

Byron van Wyk, Manager: Strategic and Administrative Services for the CTS Department, said most higher education institutions are dealing with security issues including spam and phishing emails and these were becoming more targeted.

The cyber security awareness programme will consist of quarterly campaigns and aims to promote a culture of cyber security at CPUT.

The campaigns will centre on common cyber security topics, such as password management, phishing and information protection.

Staff members will receive an email with instructions on how to participate in the programme.

The emails will be sent via the email address.

Staff will be required to watch a short video, answer a question, and will find out how they fared afterwards.

This will take no longer than five minutes to complete.

This will need to be completed within one week of receiving the initial email.

The campaigns are best viewed using the Google Chrome/ Microsoft Edge browser.

“We urge all CPUT staff members to take part in this initiative and welcome your feedback,” said Van Wyk.
