An information security event occurs when someone accesses information that they shouldn't have.

This could be accidental – such as a sensitive file being emailed to the wrong person – or deliberate – such as a departmental file server being accessed by someone who has stolen the password.

Please report all security incidents to AskOtago IT. They can help repair the damage and prevent it from happening again.

IT Assurance and Cyber Security has a 'no blame' policy, so you will never be penalised for reporting a security issue. All discussions are strictly confidential.
