How to spot rogue emails and fake web sites.

29 Oct 2007

Short course on 14 November to help you avoid identify theft.

Identity theft is a big concern these days. Victims can suffer huge financial losses and it can take some considerable time to undo the damage done. Identity theft often starts with an e-mail that lures the potential victim to a fraudulent website where the victim's credentials are then captured and used by the criminals.

On 14 November, 2pm-4pm, the University IT Security Coordinator, Tony Arnold, will be giving a short course with examples, aimed at helping users spot and deal with e-mail messages that should be treated with suspicion. Attendees will also learn how to tell if a website is genuine or is a fraudulent copy of a site.
