Watch February’s “Secure in Seconds” to learn about phishing attempts

The University Technology ([U]Tech) Information Security Office continues its Security Awareness Video of the Month Series—“Secure in Seconds”—in February for members of the Case Western Reserve University community. February’s topic is phishing.

In February’s video, the speaker warns about phishing, a tactic used by cybercriminals to trick people into compromising their computers or sharing sensitive information. They stress the importance of vigilance, advising listeners not to click on suspicious links or engage with unusual requests. The message is to be cautious, not respond if something seems fishy, and use their 60 seconds wisely to spot and stop scams.

Watch the video.
