Avoid Phishing and Another Chance to Win $100 in Bear Bucks

Trophy with five stars

The OIS is always looking for ways to improve your security and reward your participation in our efforts. This month, we want to point you towards a couple of resources that will help us identify and report potential phishing attacks. Have you seen the Phish Alert Button? It’s the easiest way for you to report potential phishing attacks while giving our office all the information we need to analyze and neutralize any potential threats. You can find the Phish Alert Button (or PAB) in the interface of the Outlook email clients on desktop and mobile or in the browser-based version of Outlook. Please check out the page below for more information about the PAB and where to find it.
