Information Security Awareness Week 2014/15 on November 24-28, 2014

While the use of IT, e.g. Internet, mobile devices, cloud services, etc., is now part of our daily life, we also at every moment face considerable Information Security (“IS”) risks, like online-service account intrusions and hijacking, data leakage and theft, denial of service access, etc., that would affect our work and life adversely.  To raise our users’ awareness of the common IS issues and to promote good practices for them to avoid falling into IS traps, ITS, in collaboration with the Data Protection Officer of the University and the Office of Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) of HKSAR, will organize the “Information Security Awareness Week 2014/15” in the week of November 24-28, 2014.

During the week, seminars, IS web quiz and exhibition highlighting the importance and promoting the understanding of Information Security and Protection of Personal Data will be organised.  Participants who can attain full score in the IS web quiz will get a souvenir on a first-come first-served basis.  Please refer to the following table for the event arrangements of the IS Awareness Week 2014/15. More details will be announced in November 2014 through email.
