#CyberAware – Be Aware, Phishing is coming

DeSales Community –

As a part of our NCSAM #CyberAware activities, the Information Technology Department will be sending out simulated phishing messages. Can you spot the phish? If you find one, please report it to and we will get back to you. As ever, keep these tips in mind:

  • Know the signs. Does the e-mail contain a vague salutation, spelling or grammatical errors, an urgent request, and/or an offer that seems impossibly good? Click that delete button.
  • Verify the sender. Check the sender’s e-mail address to make sure it’s legitimate. If it appears that the DeSales Help Desk is asking you to click on a link to increase your mailbox quota, but the sender is “,” it’s a phishing message. We do not ask you to click a link to increase your quota.
  • Never, ever share your password. Did we say never? Yup, we mean never.Your password is the key to your identity, your data, and your classmates’ and colleagues’ data. It is for your eyes only.
  • Avoid opening links and attachments from unknown senders. Get into the habit of typing known URLs into your browser. Don’t open attachments unless you’re expecting a file from someone. Give them a call if you’re suspicious.
