Have you ever received an obvious phishing email or sketchy phone call, ignored it and moved on with your day? If so, you are not alone. That time, the message may have been benign or a one-off — but how many people received that same email or call? How many people clicked on the link in the email or gave the caller information? We can all play a part in maintaining a safer world. You can help reduce response time or prevent an attack from happening altogether just by saying something or reporting suspicious activity.

How Can You Protect Yourself?

If something seems weird or out of place in an email you receive, say something. Be vigilant. For example, if you receive an email that asks you to download a patch or new software, notify someone in your IT department or your company’s security officer. The same goes for physical security. If someone is loitering by a locked door or digging through a dumpster outside of your office, contact your security officer. Whether it’s on your computer, the phone or around the office, follow your gut if you see something that isn’t right and report suspicious activity.

A useful tool for identifying phishing emails early is the “Phish Alert” button from KnowBe4. This is a simple button you can add to Outlook that allows you to report suspicious emails with the click of a button, immediately alerting IT about suspicious activity. If you are interested, ask Wipfli about how KnowBe4 can help you mitigate phishing through training and awareness.

Don’t be afraid to “stop, challenge and authenticate” suspicious activity. Stopping someone from committing a potentially malicious attack can be as simple as saying, “Hi! Can I help you?” The next step is to find out what the person’s intentions are. If you don’t feel comfortable, ask someone who works at your office for their opinion and perspective. Finally, ensure the person is who they say they are and involve the security officer when appropriate. It’s better to engage someone who does belong than to ignore someone who doesn’t.

PRO TIP: Better safe than sorry! You are always better off playing it safe and reporting something that doesn’t seem right. Trust your gut.
