Technology Services encourages all members of the campus community to beware of illegitimate phishing emails. Email remains one of the most common methods cybercriminals use to compromise an account, carry out financial scams, and deliver ransomware. They are designed to deceive you into taking an action such as:

  • Sharing your Puget Sound credentials or entering them on a dangerous website
  • Clicking a harmful link or opening an attachment containing malware
  • Purchasing gift cards or sending bitcoin
  • Divulging sensitive personal information or university data

Remember: Technology Services will NEVER send you an email asking for your password or requesting that you “re-validate” or “update” your profile by clicking on a link in a message.
