Phishing Emails

No Phishing Allowed!

Phishing is a cybercrime attack often used to steal user data, including login credentials and credit card numbers. It occurs when an attacker, masquerading as a trusted entity, tricks a victim into opening an email or text message. This can also result in your email account becoming compromised and sending out the same scam message to all of your contacts without your approval or knowledge.

Here are some tips to help you avoid falling victim to phishing scams.
What to do if you receive a phishing email:
  1. If you opened the attachment/clicked on the link and provided your information, please contact the Help Desk and follow the recommended phishing next steps.
  2. If you are able to identify a phishing attempt and did not click on the link/open the attachment, please feel free to delete the message. There is no need to notify IT, as we are almost always made aware of these messages by our filtering and monitoring tools or those who fell victim to the scam. However, if you need assistance in ascertaining whether or not an email is a phishing attempt, please contact us for assistance.
