After the success of our anti-phishing campaigns sent to faculty and staff, the OIT Security team will soon be expanding this program to the student body to continue to educate as many in the community as possible about what to look for in suspicious e-mails.
Phishing is one of the most common ways that criminals use to obtain your login credentials or other personal information to wreak havoc. By learning what to expect in these messages, you can get rid of them quickly instead of getting tricked! Students can expect these anti-phishing campaign messages to be sent out starting this week.
As a reminder, if you receive any email message that appears malicious or asks for confidential personal information, Information Security asks that you do the following:
- Contact the IT Help Desk or your local IT Support group regarding the email.
- Delete the email from your mailbox without clicking on any hyperlinks or attachments.

If you have questions about the upcoming phishing simulation or training tools, please contact the IT Help Desk at 214-768-4357 (HELP).
