Q. What can I do to avoid a phishing attack?
There are many ways to avoid a phishing attack:
1) Remember that no reputable organisation will ask for your password or other confidential log-in credentials, e.g. your pin number. Don’t give this information to anyone verbally or via e-mail.
2) Look out for suspicious indicators in an email, e.g. poor spelling, punctuation and grammar, misspelt URLs, a message written with a tone of fear or urgency or a request to verify personal information.
3) Don’t click on any links or download any attachments from emails that look suspicious. Delete and report these messages to Student IT Support at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 020 7815 6678.
4) If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
If you’re suspicious about the authenticity of an email you receive to your LSBU email account, please delete the email and contact Student IT Support at email@example.com or call us on 020 7815 6678. If you give your password to someone, reset your password immediately and contact Student IT Support afterwards.
