Although Office 365 provides a high level of mail filtering, users need to be aware that spam, ‘phishing’ emails, ransomware and viruses can still get through.
The people that create these malicious emails are constantly working on new ways to bypass mail filters, so users should always be cautious when clicking links and opening files from an unknown source or when they are not expecting the email.
If you have any concerns about an email, before clicking a link or opening a file, contact the person directly, speak with your IT support or contact us to look in to it further.
If your account is compromised, please change your password as soon as possible, check your account to make sure no new mail rules have been created and run a virus scan on your machine/s just to be safe.
If you are ever unsure, please speak with your IT support or contact us.
