Education and Awareness

Due to the nature of the work conducted through Queen’s University, a vast amount of confidential information is collected on computers and servers across campus. All members of the Queen's community have a responsibility to preserve the integrity and reliability of the University's IT infrastructure, and the confidentiality of valuable or sensitive information.  It is important to be aware of issues concerning computer safety at a personal (desktop) level. 

We also just launched our new IT Security Awareness Course. These modules are designed to highlight Information Security best practices on a variety of subjects ranging from using strong passwords to recognizing phishing attacks, with the goal of ensuring our digital infrastructure and assets are managed safely and securely.

We strongly encourage all staff, faculty, and students to avail of this course offering general information security practices. (login with NetID)
