CyberWatch: Log in to learn the latest on phishing

CyberWatch Mktg DS 1

Keeping up to date on the latest phishing emails and scams will be easier with a new internal web site devoted to sharing news of such attempts.

The CyberWatch web site at uab.edu/cyberwatch, which is open to all students, faculty and staff who log in with their BlazerID and password, will share the latest phishing email attacks and scams, with tips to help you recognize those malicious attempts to steal your information.

Phishing emails are often an attempt to get your BlazerID and password — which could give thieves access to your personal and financial information, as well as data from across the University.

Log in to the CyberWatch site at uab.edu/cyberwatch to get the latest on phishing emails and other scams. Remember that not all phishing emails will be uploaded here, so use your best judgment and err on the side of caution with suspected phishing attempts.

To report phishing attempts, you can forward the suspected email to phishing@uab.edu or download PhishMe Reporter here for one-click access to report phish.

To further protect your information and your credentials, sign up for two-factor authentication at uab.edu/2factor.
