How do I know this is a phishing attempt?

  • ITS does not send out emails requesting login information. 
  • You'll note that the link included in the email does not link to an RIT address. (We've removed the link from this example.)
  • The phish uses a common technique of trying to impart a sense of urgency and trying to get you to supply the requested information quickly.
  • This is a pretty obvious phish. If you had trouble identifying it, please visit the RIT Information Security Phishing page.
