Starting in tomorrow, February 1, phishing (pronounced ‘fishing’) drill e-mails will be sent to random associates. Phishing is a way that someone fraudulently tries to obtain information and/or access to computer systems, usually information like log-ins, passwords, credentials, etc. If an associate clicks on the phishing drill email, that associate will be required to take the eLearning course in HealthStream on phishing. Of course, any associates interested in learning more about phishing scams are welcome to take the course. You can also review these tips for spotting phishing scams.
Phishing scams pose significant risk to SCL Health information. These drills are a way to train and create awareness to better arm and protect the organization. We must all do our part to be aware and alert for these risks.
