‘Phishing’ on the rise: keep personal information private


Via e-mail there has been a rash of ‘phishing’ attempts, or better explained – multiple illegal attempts to gain access to your personal information.  Our institution has no intention to receive personal information from faculty, staff, and students via e-mail.  If you should receive any correspondence via e-mail that looks suspicious please do not open the e-mail!  Your best action is do not, I repeat: Do NoT click on it or open it!  Delete the e-mail, empty your email trash, and report the incident to the ITS Department at 8378, option 3 “ASAP”!!!
