Cybersecurity Prevention

What is Phishing?

Scammers attempting to steal information by posing as another person or organization. Email is the venue most associated with phishing. The scammer is phishing for login credentials (username and password), banking information, etc. Scammers use many tactics such as using the Judson University logo or changing the email send address to look like it is being sent by a professor or department. They may even go so far as to create a webpage that mimics Judson's website.

  • Use complex passwords and lock codes to secure your data in the event your device is lost or stolen.
  • Lock or power off your workstation when you leave your desk, even for a short period of time. Require a password login when you return.


Protect your Personal Information

  • Never give out your login credentials (username and password) to anyone. Change your password on a regular basis.
  • Before entering your personal information on a website, be certain it is legitimate and secured using HTTPS. Never give our your username, password, or ID number in an email.
