Recently we have had a surge of attempts to gain access to personal information in various ways. Here are some tips to keep in mind when speaking about sensitive data.
If you do not know the company or person you are speaking with, you should not offer any information.
If you are suspicious of any attempts to gain information, you should state you do not feel comfortable disclosing that information and end the discussion.
If you receive an email that requires you to click a link to enter personal information, you should delete the email.
If you receive a call requesting your voicemail password, you should not give out your information.
As always, if something seems suspicious DON’T do it. Please contact the Help Desk if you believe you have been targeted by one of these attempts and include as much information as possible (caller phone number, name, email details, etc.).
