Keep cyber safe this summer

It may be holiday season, but remember those cyber criminals won’t be taking a break. Stay alert for emails from people you don’t know or which seem out of context or unexpected. If you suspect you’ve received a malicious email, don’t open it or click on any attachments or web links it contains. At work you should save a copy of the original suspect email (File –Save As), forward it to then delete it. In doing so you’re also helping to provide CIS with wider visibility of security issues at the University. If you’re concerned about an email you have opened, contact the IT Service Desk straightaway on 0191 33 (41515).
