You may have noticed a new button appear in your outlook clients as below:
This is the Phishing Alert Button (PAB)
When do I use this?
Click this button if you believe you have received a phishing email or any potentially dangerous email. Any emails you report using the PAB will be automatically deleted from your inbox. The emails you report will also be forwarded to IT for analysis.
The PAB should only be used to report emails you believe to have malicious intent. If you are receiving spam or marketing emails, you should not use the PAB to report these.
How do I Use this?
- Click the Phish Alert tab to open a drop-down screen.
- A prompt will ask you if you want to report the email as a phishing email. Click the Phish Alert button to report the email.
Why should I use it?
Reporting emails will help to keep our company stay safer. Because the potential phishing emails you report are sent to us for analysis, we will now be aware of which phishing attacks are getting through. Once we’ve analysed these we can then add further defences against them. You are an important part of the process of keeping us all safer from cybercriminals. Stop, Look, and Think!
