What is Phishing?

Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information or data, such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details, by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.

In order to qualify as a phishing email, the author of the email has to include a link that takes you to a fraudulent website that spoofs a legitimate website for the purpose of collecting your login information or other PII (personally identifiable information).

Should I report Phishing?

The Information Security office at Bradley encourages the campus community to report any email that may look like phishing or is otherwise suspicious. In order to properly report the issue, follow the instructions below.

After receiving a suspicious email, you should check to see if the email you received has already been reported.

How do I report Phishing?

There are multiple methods to report a phishing email, some of them easier than others. All methods send the phishing email to [email protected].

  • While viewing the original phishing email in a web browser, click on the Demisto icon, as seen below, at the right side of the web browser window, optionally add a note (e.g. "in my Inbox" or "in my Spam folder"), and click FORWARD. When viewing email on your smartphone, the Add-on icons will be at the bottom of the screen, instead of on the right side. The Demisto Add-on makes it easy to report phishing emails and also sends the original email headers to [email protected] automatically.
  • While viewing the original phishing email message in your web browser, click on the three vertical dots to the right of the reply arrow. Click on Show original. Click on Copy to clipboard. Paste that into an email to [email protected].
  • While viewing the original phishing email message in your web browser, forward the email to [email protected].

We thank you for reporting the phishing emails to [email protected] and helping keep our campus safe.
