Email Alert

Start Date:

End Date:
2019-07-30
Headline: Email Alert
Description:

Spear phishing is an email that appears to come from a known individual or organization and attempts to get the recipient to fall for a scam or collect personal/confidential information. In order to increase the chances of success, many phishing emails will claim to be from University officials, such as the president, provost and other leadership positions. Be especially wary of any email from senior management requesting unusual or urgent actions. If you receive a suspicious email, delete it and don't follow the instructions. Legitimate business functions will come from UNF email addresses or if from a third party vendor, an announcement would have been published in Osprey Update. Learn more about email phishing.
