The Office of Information Technology's (OIT) 2018 Phishing Awareness Campaign is halfway through the year and the results show employees continue to stay alert by reporting suspicious emails. Please visit to see the mid-year results. The results show the overall number of employees reporting exceeds the overall number of employees that clicked the link or attachment.

Remember, reporting malicious emails is the BEST option. Report the email to the PhishTrap mailbox using the Report Phishing tool located on the Microsoft Outlook toolbar or within the O365 portal.
IT Security will analyze the emails and if found legitimate, return the email to you.

Although OIT has security protocols in place to protect against malicious emails, cyber criminals are constantly developing new techniques designed to bypass security measures. In order to help you make an informed decision when determining the legitimacy of email consider taking the Cybersecurity e-courses within MC Learns. The e-courses are short videos that provide employees with the skills needed to detect malicious emails.

Another security tool available to all employees is two-factor authentication (2FA), a second level of verification of your identity. This added layer of security will help decrease O365/MyMC account compromises. To learn more about 2FA and enroll, please visit
