Information Security TIP OF THE WEEK – Personalized Scams


Cyber criminals now have a wealth of information on almost all of us.

Just because an urgent email has your home address, phone number or birth date in it does not mean it is legitimate.

Forward any suspicious scam to abuse@uthsc.edu.

Stay safe!
