Stay Vigilant Against Phishing Attempts

Important Reminder: Stay Vigilant Against Phishing Attempts

I want to bring to your attention a matter of cybersecurity that affects us all. Recently, there has been an increase in phishing attempts where attackers send emails posing as legitimate warnings about password changes or account updates. These emails often look convincing and may urge you to click on links or provide personal information.

Please remember the following precautions to protect yourself and our organization:

  1. Verify the Source: Before clicking on any links, carefully check the sender’s email address for any discrepancies. Be cautious of email addresses that resemble, but do not exactly match, those of legitimate entities.
  2. Do Not Share Personal Information: Never share your personal or financial information through email. Our IT department will never ask for your passwords via email.
  3. Use Official Channels: If an email asks you to make any changes to your account or login credentials, go directly to the official website instead of clicking on any links within the email.
  4. Report Suspicious Emails: If you receive a suspicious email, do not respond to it. Instead, report it to our IT support team immediately for further investigation.
  5. Stay Updated: Keep your software and anti-virus protection up-to-date to defend against threats.

Your vigilance and prompt reporting can make a big difference in keeping our digital environment secure. Let’s continue to support each other and ensure our workplace remains safe and secure.
