Phishing Protection Video
The University is experiencing a
dramatic increase in targeted phishing and spam attacks. Faculty,
staff, and students have been receiving emails that are created to look
as if they came from University Information Technology, Information
Systems Division, the IT Help Desk, or other support locations. View University IT’s video on phishing for some important tips. Do you have ideas that should be shared as security tips of the week? If so, send them to UnivIT_SP@ur.rochester.edu.
