Computer Security Training

I was thinking that if Edge Hill is encouraging people to take part in online courses, we perhaps have some responsibility to make students aware about home computer security.

Not sure what people think about this... whether it is someone elses responsibility rather than ours?

I don't think that we provide anything at Edge Hill, but there are guides out there:

Bradford University's IT Services have guides for students.
James Madison University has comprehensive help.
Carnegie Mellon has home network security pages.
And Lynda.com have 8 hours of videos.

All of these have useful information, but might be on the techie side for many students. Might be another job for Camtasia, but is probably low on our list of priorities.
