IT Security

The University Computing Centre is the central contact point for IT security issues and is responsible for handling all IT security incidents at the University. Our services are under constant monitoring for attempted attacks and misuse. In the event of system irregularities, the responsible administrator(s) will be immediately informed so that the matter can be investigated and any problems can be rectified.
