Cyber Security Improvement Program

Cyber security incidents can have serious outcomes. Institutions as well as individuals are targets and it is more important than ever to ensure the Griffith community is secure.

With this in mind, we are embarking on a major cyber security improvement program, which will enhance the cyber security capabilities of the University. The program’s initiatives will affect you including;

  • introducing a safer way to connect your devices to the Griffith University and eduroam Wi-Fi networks
  • Vulnerability scanning to ensure the Griffith network is kept up-to-date to reduce our chance of being targeted through out of date software
  • Phishing simulation which will build your awareness around being scammed
  • Cloud-based enterprise password manager to assist groups and individuals in managing and administering passwords and sensitive data
  • Multi-factor identification improving the security around your Griffith logins
  • Cyber security essentials training module to provide you with practical steps to ensure your online safety

Cyber Security Essentials Training

As part of the Griffith Integrity Program, the Cyber Security Essentials training module aims to build awareness of responsibility, key threats, mitigation actions and incident reporting.

The training will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. At the end, an online assessment will check your understanding of the key concepts.

The training module should be completed by all new staff at induction and annually for all staff.
