NIU’s Division of Information Technology will never ask you for your password
What’s in their ‘bag of phishing tricks’?
How do I protect myself?
Be critical of the email and assess who it’s from and the reason behind it. Is the email asking for your credentials? Are they trying to get you to open an attachment? Click on a link? Sometimes it is smart to call the organization or check the organization’s website to verify if they are sending emails of this nature out to their users/customers.
Oh NO! I just answered that phishing email; what do I do now?
If you receive a phishing e-mail, forward it as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
