What Is Phishing?

The most common technique that hackers and identity thieves use to compromise accounts and install malware is phishing.

Phishing is an email fraud method used by hackers and thieves. The email usually appears to come from a legitimate sender in order to lure unsuspecting recipients into giving their personal, financial, or other sensitive information. The scammers use that information to commit identity theft, gain access to your accounts, and hack your computer.

Always Verify

  • Never respond to any suspicious email by clicking on links or filling out forms with personal or financial information.
  • If you are unsure as to whether a website is legitimate, confirm it by contacting the company or organization.
  • Double check the URLs of websites you visit. Rather than using contact information provided in any email, take a moment and look it up on the company's website.
  • Never provide personal information or information about your company/organization via email, text, or over the phone.
  • Don't open unexpected attachments. Contact the email source to verify the contents.

Action Steps if Compromised

If you receive a suspicious email please forward it to postmaster@csuglobal.edu. We are using the information you provide to minimize the current phishing threat.
