IT Supporters: Training for the New Password App Thu 31 Oct 2019   09:30 Finished

A course for Computer Officers on the UIS password application and the skills they will need to use it. Major topics covered include:

  • UIS policies regarding UIS accounts
  • Privacy briefing covering the legal status of UIS accounts and your obligations to users
  • Assertiveness training to assist you in dealing with problematic requests
  • Demonstration of the new password application
  • Online test

This course includes descriptions of the circumstances under which you may, and more importantly, may not give out account details (including password reset tokens). The examples and scenarios used are based on actual requests and incidents, and includes some content that could be distressing. This material is specifically included to ensure that Computer Officers are aware of the social engineering techniques that have been used in attempts to gain access to accounts, often under difficult and stressful circumstances. This is intended to assist you in developing the skills to deal appropriately with such situations if they occur within your own institution and forms an essential part of the course.

Successful completion of this course and the online exam is mandatory for Computer Officers wishing to have password resetting authority using the UIS password application for a range of University wide services including Hermes, Raven and the MCS.

This introductory course will provide an understanding of the University Data network (UDN), how different university institution’s networks connect to it and the networking services that the University Information Services (UIS) provide centrally.

It will cover common troubleshooting issues and provides the opportunity to discuss best practice in a range of scenarios and to use operating system utilities to diagnose problems locally at institutions. It will identify the scenarios of when a networking issue would be escalated to UIS service desk and the information to provide.

The course is largely hands on using group work and will conclude with a group quiz (just for fun!).
