  • Don’t click on anything (links, attachments, images) without checking the source

  • Report suspicious emails to an IT Help Desk
  • Conduct antivirus scans on all of your devices (phone, personal and work computers)
  • Change your passwords, especially if you reuse passwords between accounts
