Stay Scam Aware

IT Solutions is excited that so many of you completed Information Security training. However, being aware of scams and spam is an ongoing effort. 

Your Information is Valuable
Your data and information have become the most valuable 21st Century commodity; a commodity that others are looking to exploit for their own personal gain or profit. It’s wise to challenge a situation when it seems like too much information is being asked. Instead, ask yourself, “Is it really necessary or worth it, that I give up this information?”

TWU will NEVER:

  • Ask you to give us your password
  • Ask for your social security number via email

#1 Tip to Avoid Scams
Slow down and read and reply to email on a laptop or computer (rather than your phone), which allows you to see the full email address of the sender, as well as to copy any hyperlinks and test them in a malicious link scanner like https://urlscan.io/
