Cybersecurity Month: How can I report an incident?

4 October 2022

So there you are, just out of a long seminar with fellow students. After all that hard work you’re rather thirsty so you quickly run to the vending machine down the hall. When you get back, your laptop has gone. Nobody saw what happened. But did you lock your laptop before leaving or were you still logged in? Now you’re really worried. What should you do?

Steps to take

Incidents happen and people make mistakes. But what steps should you take if it happens to you? 

  1. Always report (potential) incidents to the ISSC Helpdesk via tel. +31 71 527 8888 or helpdesk@issc.leidenuniv.nl
  2. Learn from your mistakes. Stay alert and make sure you take sufficient precautions next time. Also see next week's Cybersecurity Month article.
