Information Security Awareness: Axioms

Did you receive an e-mail from the IT support desk? Did you receive an e-mail from the IT help desk? If you did, delete it immediately. It's phishing. The entity that assists you with technology problems on campus is the RITE Support Desk. Remember:

  • The RITE Support Desk will never, under any circumstance, ask a user for his or her password, or to enter his or her password into a form. Never share your password in any way. Your password has one use, and that is to allow you access to Buffalo State resources.
  • Do not click on links in an e-mail unless you are absolutely sure you know who the e-mail is from and can verify that the e-mail is from that person or group.
  • Just because an e-mail originates from an address on campus does not mean it is legitimate. You must always stop, read, and think, and if you're still not sure, call the individual and ask that person if he or she sent you an e-mail with a link.
