The Big Data Show perform a preview of their new show at the College’s Kirkcaldy Campus. 

Fife College has joined organisations from all over Scotland in highlighting the importance of cyber security this week.

The College hosted drop-in events across a number of campuses to mark Cyber Scotland Week 2020 (17 – 23 February). 

Cyber Scotland Week is encouraging people and organisations to think about cyber security and how they can better protect themselves against online threats. 

The drop-in events at Fife College offered students and staff an opportunity to get advice about passwords, updates, online security and other cyber security topics.

Staff from the College’s Digital Services team were on hand to help with any phishing email breaches and discuss steps that can be taken to be better protected online. 

There was also a preview performance from The Big Data Show, a theatre company taking a show on tour across some venues later this year, at the College’s Kirkcaldy Campus on Tuesday (18 February).

An interactive experience, the show uses digital devices to test the audience’s knowledge to see just how cyber savvy they really are. 

The preview show took place in the atrium at the campus with over 100 students in attendance. 

Tom MacMaster, Digital Governance Manager at Fife College, said: “Cyber Scotland Week is a great opportunity to highlight the importance of staying safe online. 

“Colleges can be as vulnerable to Cyber Crime as anyone else, so it’s important that we stay alert and that students and staff report anything suspicious to our Digital Services team.”
