Cyber security for students

We are committed to providing a safe, effective and respectful online learning environment for our students. All students, their families, staff members and the wider community have a responsibility to ensure they are up to date with the latest cyber security information.

There are a number of eSafety issues affecting students today, including personal information and identity protection, cyber bullying and managing increased time spent online.

Below is a list of suggestions on how to stay e-smart and some links to other helpful resources.

What can I do to stay eSafe?

  • Ensure you always log off from a college computer if you leave it unattended
  • Keep your personal devices secure and their software up to date
  • Never click on a link or open a file that you do not trust
  • Keep any mobile storage devices (USBs, hard drives) in a secure location
  • Ensure your passwords are unique, regularly changed and never written down
  • Report any abusive or illegal online activity to your lecturer or college staff member
  • Ensure you stay up to date with our Acceptable Use of IT policies
