Do you know what a phishing email looks like? More importantly, do you know what to do if you receive one?
We work hard to keep our people, systems and data safe from cyber attacks every day. While there is much we can do, we also need your help to make sure we aren’t victims of cyber criminals.
This time of year is particularly hot for online crime, as we see a lot of people being targeted with malicious phishing emails around the Christmas period. To make sure you don’t fall foul of these scams, we have put together some information about how to spot and report a phishing email.
We’ll also be running a fake phishing campaign where we will send out a scam email to all users over the next few days. If you spot it in your inbox and report it, you could be in with a chance to win one of five £50 Amazon vouchers!
