Information Security

Report an Incident

  • Lost a laptop?
  • Had your email account hacked?
  • Picked up malware by mistake?

If your data and systems have been hacked, attacked, infected or abused in any way, you need to report it without delay.

If you work or study at the University, tell your local IT team.

If you are an IT officer or have a remit to protect information security, report it directly to us here.

The quicker we all act, the less we have to worry about.
