Both Personnel’s and Student’s Information Security Courses are found on new Moodle.
Personnel’s mandatory information security training has transferred on Moodle
The objective of Metropolia University is that every member of staff has basic information security skills. Basic level means the level at which a person understands:
- password security
- secure data handling
- protecting against malware and phishing messages
You don’t need to complete the course again if you have passed the course as an approved grade. The previous course records and performances transfer in the new Moodle area automatically. The already started course can be continued in the new Moodle area where you previously left. The training must be completed by the end of this year.
Below is the link into the course or you can search for it on Moodle using the keyword “information security”.

The student information security training has been uploaded on the Student’s Desktop.
Why is it important to protect yourself?
If you use the internet, you could be a target for cyber criminals. Criminals are trying to steal money, information, your identity or gain access to valuable data. For example, email accounts hijacked by phishing are used both to read messages and to send new phishing messages to other victims. At the end of a data breach, an attacker can steal or encrypt all files, including backups, rendering the attacked device unusable. In the worst case, the compromised device is used to steal data from other devices.
However, you shouldn’t feel discouraged. Developing information security skills is a cooperative effort in which you have the support of everyone else at Metropolia.
