NUS IT sent staff this “Refresher on Security: Lessons Learnt from the SingHealth Breach”. The video provides the highlights and so spares us having to read the Public Report published by the Committee of Inquiry in Jan 2019.
Many important (and surprising) lessons are embedded in this animation, and I congratulated them on producing it for us.
This two minute video is definitely a watchable primer in my “Digital Literacies for the 21st Century” class next year. Students can watch this and then we shall discuss the wider implications.
Interestingly, at the core of all this are the same old problems because it stems from human behaviour.
In this part of the class I ask students about what they do for passwords and many confess to having just the one to two. And there is no password manager in use by for these folk.
Digital natives may not necessarily be digitally savvy, hence the class.
