An information security incident is an actual or possible breach of the University's security policies and can include:
Report any concerns to the ITS Service Desk. The report is passed to the University IT Security Emergency Response Team (ITSERT) who respond to and manage investigations into information security incidents and ICT Acceptable Use Policy breaches.
ITSERT will deal with all reports in strictest confidence, sharing information only with individuals who need to be involved in the investigation. All information and investigation material will be stored securely.
All investigations are handled in line with the University's Acceptable Use Policy, and with relevant legislation. In some cases, requests for investigation may require completion of an ITSERT Investigation Authorisation form
You should always report your concerns because misuse could damage the University network, be illegal or have a negative impact on the University's reputation. All of these can have a negative effect on your studies or job with the University. By reporting your concerns, you are providing the best opportunity to prevent any recurrence and to limit damage to the University.
