National Cybersecurity Awareness Month: Stop.Think.Connect.

As October marks the 11th anniversary of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), ETS recognizes that safe online practices are the shared responsibility of our entire community. It is our mission to actively educate the CCA community on these issues, and provide services to keep our campus safe from phishing and other intrusions into our digital environment.

The ETS Helpdesk is our main point of contact for all technology inquiries, including suspected phishing, hacking and other security concerns. As part of a focus campaign, we will be providing periodic updates and online best practices.

We continue to discover email messages designed to mislead our community, the most recent of which was immediately and appropriately classified as spam by Google, our email provider. 

Be especially wary of ANY links sent in e-mail, and especially in your Inbox, Spam, or any other folder. If you are not confident of the link web address (URL), don’t click it. 

How can I tell if a link is safe without clicking on it? You can verify the full URL by hovering your cursor over the link. The URL will appear at the very bottom left corner of your browser window. Try hovering your cursor over this link. What does it tell you?
