The Tulane audience represents a valuable target for hackers. Access to intellectual property, social security numbers, and credit card data make Tulane affiliates especially attractive to computer criminals. As we head into a new semester, we want to remind you to be diligent about safe computing and guard against phishing attacks.
It’s important to guard your password as you would your personal bankcard and PIN. Along with your Tulane email address, it can serve as an entryway for spammers and criminals. Hackers will attempt to compromise your email account, using it to send seemingly legitimate messages to the Tulane audience.
What steps can you take to protect yourself against phishing and malware?
If you need help with any of these steps, please contact the Technical Support and Network Operations Center at email@example.com or call (504) 862-8888.
And remember, Technology Services will never ask for your password in any of our communications.
Here’s to a year of safe computing.
