Phishing emails are often referred to as fake, scam and suspicious emails and their purpose is to compromise an organisation’s computer systems and network, to gain unauthorised access. The phishing emails will often include a fake website link or malicious file attachment – you should never click on either of these.
Tips you can use to spot phishing emails include: hovering your cursor over the link, checking the sender's email address carefully, and looking out for emails which purport to have a sense of urgency or include threats.
If you believe you have been compromised by a phishing email, contact the FCIU at 949-8797 or at RCIPS.FCU@rcips.ky.
