Cyber Security – Submit Phishing Emails

Last October, we announced a new tool to help protect you and Stetson University from the notorious cyber-attacks we hear about weekly. The tool is called the “Phish Alert” button that is automatically installed in Outlook and Office 365 email. We have seen a significant increase in adoption but want to make sure everyone knows about it.

If you receive a suspicious email, you can report the email to the Information Technology department by clicking the Phish Alert button in Outlook or Office 365. If you receive a SPAM or marketing message, please delete the email or unsubscribe from the vendor if they are reputable.  By reporting phishing emails, proper steps can be taken to block senders as well as remove malicious messages from the inboxes of affected users.

We encourage all faculty, staff and students with Windows Outlook to use the Phish Alert button.

To use the button in Outlook:

  1. Select the suspicious email and press the “Phish Alert Report” button.
  2. Confirm your submission by pressing the “Submit Email” button.
  3. A copy of the message will be automatically sent to I.T., which we can use to evaluate and respond appropriately.
