OSWEGO, N.Y.– SUNY Oswego’s Campus Technology Services hosts Cyber Awareness Month in the month of October. This Month is dedicated to the security of mobile devices and computers for students and staff on campus. Events have been held for various forms of cyber security and are open to anybody.
The Campus Technology Support urges everyone to be cautious of all your devices to avoid any further cyber-attacks. Some examples of suspicious cyber behavior include phishing emails or scams sent by people who are attempting to hack others on campus.
Campus Technology Services Help Desk Assistant Ian said he wanted to remind students not to open or respond to suspicious emails, and to always check the source.
“One of the ones I thought was pretty convincing was a phishing email where they took our header and all they simply did was give you a link that said please log in here to confirm your account but when you clicked the link, it wouldn’t actually bring you to any of our sites or anywhere in Oswego. It basically brought to a page that looked like a log in and asked you for your username and password,” Lenich said.
