In an effort to more effectively and quickly alert the Pace community about cyber threats which pose a real risk and are actively targeting our students, staff, or faculty, we have created a new email account, ITS Security Alerts (firstname.lastname@example.org). Effective immediately, this new email account will only be used to send timely alerts to the Pace community about malicious phishing messages and other cyber threats, which are currently in progress. We hope that this change will increase visibility for these types of alerts.
As always, stay cautious. If you receive any suspicious emails, DO NOT reply, provide any information, open any attachments, or click on any links. Instead, report it by sending the spam/phishing email as an attachment to email@example.com. Then, DELETE it from your Inbox and permanently remove it from your Deleted Items folder.
The ITS Help Desk account (firstname.lastname@example.org) will continue to be used to communicate planned system maintenance, outages, and other announcements. If you have any questions about this initiative, please contact us at email@example.com.
