IT Services run termly Breakfast at IT Services introductory sessions. Over croissants and coffee, we will introduce you to the many important services that are available to you for your work or research.

We recommend you work through the online information security awareness module (compulsory for UAS staff) to become aware of issues around information security and how they affect you.
