Safe Online - 4 September 2018 video training on E-mail Security

An e-mail from a familiar-looking address may contain for instance ransomware that could cause significant damages to Aalto University.

If you have the slightest suspicion about the origin and contents of an e-mail, you should not react to it nor open any files or links in it.

Check the playful video to get to know, for instance, how to proceed when sending classified information via e-mail, or when you receive an email from your colleague saying that you have won 1000 euros and requesting your personal and banking information: https://hakalogin.kyberoppi.fi/aalto/.
