Information security courses

To all employees at UiB.

IT security is a challenge both at work and private. Attempts to obtain unauthorized access to, manipulation and damage to our data and systems are becoming more advanced and increasing in scope. Security and trust in our systems and our data is important in everyday life, and it is in everyone’s interest that we together contribute to protecting our values. We are all responsible for protecting and preserving our student and research data, as well as administrative data. One of the best measures UiB can implement is better knowledge and competence.

In connection with the National Security Month, which is organized in October each year, we will offer all employees a course in information security. The course consists of a series of 2–3 minute modules that you will receive by email from 3 October. The sender is National Security Month 2017 (

I hope you want to participate in the course, thus helping us to increase our shared expertise in this important area. We wish to register those who complete this course in Information Security in My Folder in the HR Portal to document that you have completed the course.

If you wish to attend this course, you can register here.

The registration deadline is Friday 29 September at. 12:00.

We also remind you of the Digital Day for employees on 4 October, where IT security will have its own stand.

Best regards,
Tore Burheim
