iCSS is releasing a new animated video “Why does cyber security matter for everyone?” for raising awareness of all on cyber security risks we are all facing in today’s highly digitalised and networked world. The video is part of an iCSS-led cyber security awareness campaign for all staff and students of the University of Kent.
The video is the second of a series of animated video iCSS has produced, after the first one “How to be cyber superhero” for educating children about cyber security career pathways was released in February 2023 for the Safer Internet Day (see here for a news article about the first video). Both videos are released as free e-resources for all to use for their own cyber security awareness activities.
The new video was produced by the iCSS Director Professor Shujun Li with Science Animated (SciAni), a company dedicated to producing animated videos to facilitate scientific communications with the general public. A number of other iCSS researchers contributed to the creation of the video: Dr Budi Arief, Dr Sanjay Bhattacherjee, Dr Virginia Franqueira, Dr Gareth Mott, Dr Jason Nurse, Ms Clare Patterson, and Dr Alexandra Covaci.
Representing the University of Kent as an UK Government recognised Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Education (ACE-CSE) with a Gold award status, iCSS is actively supporting all University of Kent staff and students to learn about cyber security and online safety. Recent initiatives include a new Moodle e-learning space “Cyber Security: Training, Awareness and Engagement for All Students”, a cyber security awareness and engagement campaign for all University of Kent students (click here for a news article), and the Kent & Medway Cyber Security Student Society (KMCS3) welcoming University of Kent students from all subjects. More activities on cyber security and online safety awareness are being planned at iCSS, so please follow our website and social media accounts to be informed!
