September 17, 2020 10:31AM BST
[Identified] The National Cyber Security Centre has issued an alert after a recent spike in attacks on educational institutions. You may have seen today's article on the BBC news highlighting recent incidents. The University of Bristol takes such attacks very seriously, and we ensure that our technology and standards meet best practice. While we have not been a victim of the recent spate of attacks, our best prevention against a successful attack is making sure you are as informed and as vigilant as possible. We should by now all be aware of the need to pause before clicking that odd link in the unexpected email, even when it seems to be from your bank, colleague or government department. For more information and guidance see the news item on the staff intranet https://uob.sharepoint.com/sites/staff/SitePages/new-cyber-security-resources-and-training.aspx . If in doubt on any matter please report it to the IT Service Desk, service-desk@bristol.ac.uk
