Important Information and new resources about Phishing

December 20th, 2012 by Jo-Ann

The Plymouth State community, like many university communities across the nation, has been seen an increased level of Phishing in recent months.  Phishing is a type of Internet fraud, usually in the form of an email, which seeks to acquire your credentials (username and password) by deception.

When one of our community members inadvertently shares their PSU username and password in one of these situations, they place not only themselves, but the entire PSU community at risk.  As a way of helping you become more informed about recent Phishing activities are at Plymouth State University, your friends in Information Technology Services are happy to offer you two new resources:

The first is a short video about Phishing, highlighting why it is important to protect your personal log on information.
