The Makerere University Cybersecurity Toolkit is a comprehensive resource designed to empower both staff and students with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate the digital landscape securely. This toolkit offers a wide range of educational materials, best practices, and practical guidance to help you understand and mitigate cybersecurity risks.

Why Should You Use the Cybersecurity Toolkit?

  • Gain insights into the importance of strong passwords and how to create and manage them.

Your security is our top priority, and the Makerere University Cybersecurity Toolkit has been developed to provide you with the tools and knowledge necessary to protect yourself and our university from cyber threats.

We encourage all members of our community, both staff and students, to take advantage of this valuable resource. Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, and by equipping ourselves with the right knowledge, we can collectively contribute to a safer digital environment.
