No, Chris did not send you THAT email.


Rules of the road...if an email makes your pulse quicken, stop clicking, take a deep breath, exhale and start hovering your mouse! If you get an email from Chris or any other supervisor asking you to do anything from reading an updated policy to doing them an urgent favor, repeat after me, stop clicking. Take a deep breath, exhale, and start hovering your mouse.
 
 1. Check the sender’s email, does it raise any suspicions? Hover your mouse over the sender’s address or reply to: address.
 
 2. Before clicking on any links in the email, hover your mouse over the link to see where it’s taking you.
 
 3. If you suspect an email might be Phishing or otherwise malicious, contact the help desk, or reach out to the individual to verify its authenticity.

More 30 minute quick courses

Excel in 30 minutes seems to have revealed the magic formula. Because the feedback has been so good, we have decided to continue our 30 minute quick courses. We are scheduling 2 courses a month and will be sending out an invitation so you can pick the courses you want to attend. If you haven't been to one of the 30 minute courses (lunch provided) and would like to be added to our invitation list, send an email to: dwarrick@callutheran.edu with the subject "30 minute workshops". We will send you a list of the upcoming courses.


Is Your Password Strong Enough?

The Google password checkup extension is definitely the greatest thing since the discovery of fire. Designed by cryptology experts at Stanford and Google, this extension monitors usernames and passwords against an enormous database (4 billion names and passwords) of compromised credentials. When someone logs in with a username and password that Google knows has been compromised, it triggers a warning that prompts the user to change the password.
 
 We’ve talked a lot about the site: https://haveibeenpwned.com/ which tells you if your credentials have been stolen. Now, let Google do that for you in real time.
 
 Go to: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/password-checkup/pncabnpcffmalkkjpajodfhijclecjno to add the extension.
