Be aware, stay safe online
One of our most important responsibilities is keeping Tilburg University’s data safe and secure. We implement and maintain measures to effectively address potential weaknesses and breaches in our systems. Tilburg University believes that information security is everyone’s responsibility and students, faculty and staff needs to be aware of their role in preventing and reducing cyber threats.
Security Awareness Week
The goal of Tilburg University Awareness Week is to increase awareness about cyber security issues. By being aware of what you share online you can already protect yourself. During this week you will be informed about privacy and security, what threats you might face and how you can protect your personal data with a few simple actions.
The Awareness Week takes place from May 6 up to and including May 10.
