In this guide, you will find instructions on how to check your information security knowledge.

We invite all employees of the University of Tartu to check their information security knowledge with cyber hygiene tests in the online environment. The aim of the tests is to highlight the main risks of everyday computer use through real-life examples and test questions and to make the computer user think about them.

Cyber hygiene test

In the background of recent events, it has become clear that security, including cyber security, is not self-evident. Every employee can contribute to increasing the university's cyber security by being aware of the cyber threats that affect them.

As users, we are all the first targets of cyber criminals. We can protect ourselves from cyber threats by continuously improving our skills and knowledge and implementing safe behavior habits. It is important to be aware of cyber threats, to be able to recognize the risks and to immediately report the incident to University of Tartu IT support.
In cooperation with the company CybExer Technologies OÜ, we have created an online environment for cyber hygiene tests, you can log in to the online environment with your usual UT username and password. Check more about logging in here.

The environment has three training modules (Cyber Hygiene, Work from Home and Data Protection module) consisting of an introductory questionnaire, a course and a test, illustrated with images and explanatory videos. When completing the modules, it is also possible to write comments, and everyone can receive a brief summary of the risks found during the test to their e-mail address.
