Security Awareness

 

What is security awareness?

The knowledge and attitude members of an organization possess regarding the protection of the physical, and especially informational, assets of that organization. Being security aware means you understand that there is the potential for some people to deliberately or accidentally steal, damage, or misuse the data that is stored within a company's computer systems and throughout its organization. Therefore, it would be prudent to support the assets of the institution (information, physical, and personal) by trying to stop that from happening.

 

What is SPAM?

SPAM is the word used to describe unwanted e-mail. The term is most often associated with Unsolicited Commercial E-mail also commonly known as UCE, but it also applies to any other type of undesirable or unwanted e-mail, usenet postings, instant messages, promoting web sites, and other such items.

 

How to reduce SPAM?

  • When you receive a UCE, delete it. Never click on any web links or open attachments associated with UCE.
  • When you receive a UCE, do not reply. If you are given the option to remove your address, do not do so unless you are certain the organization is reputable. This is usually just a way for the organization to verify that your address is still actively used. If you request to be removed from the list, your address may simply be resold to another UCE.
  • Avoid giving out your primary e-mail address. Guard your main e-mail address just as you would your telephone number. 
  • Use the filtering capabilities in your e-mail client to block UCE.
  • Report all spam to your e-mail administrator or Helpdesk.

 

What is phishing?

Phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.

 

How to report phishing attempts? 

Report any phishing attempts, hacking, or compromised accounts to information security. You can forward the message to humphrej@nwfsc.edu. Be sure to include full message headers in your email.
