Don’t Let a Hacker Turn Your Summer Into a Bummer

DON’T LET A HACKER TURN YOUR SUMMER INTO A BUMMER

Summer is here and many students and faculty take to the roads, beaches, and parks…in other words to spots of respite beyond the computer screen.

But nefarious activity continues in the form of malware and phishing (pronounced the same way as the fun summer activity from a pier but far different!)

Don’t let a hacker or scammer turn your summer into a bummer.

Follow these tips from The KnowBe4 Security Team for email protection:

Review the content of the email.

  • ​​Is the sender asking me to click on a link or open an attachment to avoid a negative consequence, or to gain something of value?
  • Is the email out of the ordinary, or does it have bad grammar or spelling errors?
  • Is the sender asking me to click a link or open up an attachment that seems odd or illogical?
  • Do I have an uncomfortable gut feeling about the sender’s request to open an attachment or click a link?
  • Is the email asking me to look at a compromising or embarrassing picture of myself or someone I know?

If you notice anything about the email that alarms you, do not click links, open attachments, or reply.

Have a safe and restful and cyber-secure summer!
