Information Security Awareness Training Course

This is a self-paced course aimed at developing a broad awareness of Information Security issues among University staff. It lasts approximately 100 - 110 minutes including a test at the end.
The course is available free of charge to all UCISA Full member institutions, but may not be passed on to third parties. Occasional updates will be made to reflect significant changes in legislation, threats etc. We are sorry but the course is not available to Affiliate, Corporate or Individual members.

The course was originally developed by a consortium of 5 Universities led by the University of Leicester in conjunction with Leo Learning Technologies, and in its original form won the  UCISA-Eduserv Award for Excellence 2011.

In 2015, UCISA commissioned Jerry Niman to undertake a market survey of available products. After inviting 35 suppliers to express interest, 16 submissions were analysed and 7 products short-listed & evaluated in depth against 33 criteria. The Leo offering was a clear winner, and has been comprehensively updated to make it applicable across the sector.

It is presented as a zipped SCORM 1.2 package to upload into the VLE of your choice. It should be suitable for use on a wide range of browsers and mobile devices. The package is available to download from the link below. Please note that access to the link is restricted to the named representatives of UCISA Full members only.

Hosting can also be provided by Leo Learning at a reasonable annual fee. Should you wish to customise the course, the Gomo 3.0 authoring tool can be purchased from Leo (cost per authoring seat per year; you donot need a license per end user). Technical support services for use of the Gomo tool are also available from Leo.
