We have recently seen an increase in the number of phishing messages being sent to State of Utah employees. The Department of Technology Services has partnered with MS-ISAC to help raise security awareness. Please take a few minutes and read the How to Spot Phishing Messages Like a Pro article from the Center for Internet Security June Newsletter.
- If it seems too good to be true, it probably is
- Hover your cursor over links in messages to find where the link is actually going
- Look for misspellings and poor grammar, which can be good signs a message is a fraud
- Never respond to an email requesting sensitive personal information (birthday, Social Security Number, username/password, etc.)
