Phishing: Don't Take the Bait!
What is Phishing?
Phishing is a type of scam where a malicious actor sends emails (and sometimes text messages) that are designed to look urgent in order to get you to quickly click on a malicious link or respond in some way. They are frequently used to steal sensitive personal information (such as banking passwords) and university data.
You can help deter these attacks by keeping a lookout for phishing messages and always pausing to consider before acting on a message if it looks at all suspicious.
