Phishing Prevention Awareness, provided by the University of New Haven & LinkedIn Learning

Using content from LinkedIn Learning we are providing direct links to important course videos that will help the University population detect and prevent phishing scams. Phishing scams are fraudulent email messages appearing to come from legitimate sources (for example, your University or your bank). These messages usually direct you to a spoofed Web site or otherwise get you to divulge private information. This private information is then used to commit identity theft or other malicious activities.

If you receive an email you suspect as Phishing you can forward the email to and OIT will take action. Remember, OIT & the University will never ask for your password.

How Can I Stay Protected from Phishing Scams?

Recognize the Sender

Verify the sender is who you think it is! Double-click or tap the sender’s name to view the person’s real email address.

Think / Re-Think

If you can’t verify the sender, do not click any links within the message. Go directly to the known Web site address instead.
