Many in the ISU employees recently received an email from Information Security <firstname.lastname@example.org> with the subject " Welcome to your Security Awareness Training Account"
We have received many inquiries if this is a legitimate email. Thanks for the checking, since this is one of the areas this training covers, it is good practice to ask if you are not sure.
This is a legitimate email sent by ISU Information Security group within IT Services.
The message looks like this.
