Phishy mail delivered to departments

Did you see the peculiar card your department received via campus mail in the last week?

“October is Cyber Security Awareness month, a great time to think about all things cyber security,” says Perry Koob, acting chief information officer. “Nothing scares me more than the cyber security threats this campus sees on a daily basis, which are only tricks and never the treat they seem.” 

With cyber security threats increasing daily, S&T’s information technology (IT) team wanted to take a different approach to Cyber Security Awareness month. This year, IT has taken the conversation out of the cyber world and into the physical world by sending one of four different card designs to departments across campus. Each card highlights a common cyber security issue and will direct you to valuable information to help protect yourselves. Scanning the QR code from each card takes you to S&T IT’s Safe Computing website, an educational website to raise awareness of cyber security monitoring and safe computing practices.

Even if you received a card in the mail, check out the digital versions of all four designs.

If you have any additional feedback regarding the cards or want to share your own experience with seeing the card sent to your department, please email
