Are YOU prepared to catch the phishing email?

Soon, the GRCC Information Security Team will be releasing a phishing email to all of GRCC Staff. IT Security plans to REWARD the department with the lowest number of click-rates based on the results of the phishing email.
 

Tips to Identify Phishing Emails

  1. Be cautious of the urgency within an email
     
  2. Hover over links in emails before clicking them. (The real destination is in the lower left corner of the open window)
     
  3. Double check the URL is legitimate before submitting credentials (username, password) to a web-page
     
  4. Be sure the email from a friend/colleague is authentic; Remember that their email could have been compromised or spoofed
     
  5. If you’re not expecting a document/PDF, DON’T open it. If you know the individual, try contacting them to determine if it’s safe.
