Reminder: Be Aware of Phishing Attempts!

The start of a new semester brings with it an increase in the attempts made to compromise the LSU network and your accounts. Please be vigilant in protecting your information, especially your email and myLSU credentials. You are receiving tons of legitimate emails asking you to click on links and complete some process or another. Unfortunately, it just takes one fraudulent email and subsequent action to wreak havoc.  Always hover over any links to confirm that they return to the institution sending the message.

When you suspect a phishing attempt, forward the email to or use the PhishMe Reporter button (a purple icon in the upper right corner of e-mails in your LSUMail) to report the email as suspicious. We list all known phishing attempts on our site as well as offer additional tips for identifying phish.

Please assist us in keeping your accounts secure. Check it before you click it!
