Abstract. Nowadays internet is becoming one of the most important tools for solving various challenges that arise before a person. They are the ability of receiving information, online services and education, possibility of work and communication. However, with the spreading spheres of the application of internet resources, there appears a danger of becoming a victim of cyber criminals. For them confidential data of social network accounts, online bank logins and passwords are rather attractive. Today cyber criminals are interested in the information resources of different companies, organizations as well as universities that publish in their information systems different kind of data varying from personal data of their employees to the results of scientific research activities. Thus, according to specialists, currently the issues of providing cyber security of universities as well their students and employees are the most pressing ones. Undoubtedly, universities take measures on securing information systems, special infrastructures on cyber security are created, different software is being bought and installed, etc. Still, to our mind, internet users, students and employees, play the key role in providing the personal cyber security as well as the university one. That’s why we oriented our research to the assessment of the knowledge in the field of cyber security and readiness to apply this knowledge for providing self-security. As part of the study we applied the methods according to the goal of the research. Generalization of the results confirmed the necessity of developing special educational programs aimed at forming competencies in the field of cyber security.

Keywords: information security at the university, teaching the basics of cybersecurity.
