Hello [[Your First Name]],

You have been signed up for phishing training by the Mines Cyber-Security team. You clicked on a link in a phishing test, so you will need to complete the assigned training at https://training.knowbe4.com/ui/login. *This training is separate from the Cybersecurity Awareness Training.

It is the Mines’ Security team’s goal to help you identify real versus phishing emails. For example, this email is real, and you can tell because:
If you hover over the link, it shows the correct URL mentioned
The sender’s email address is a real Mines email address
You can verify ITS legitimate emails at it.mines.edu/verify
Follow this link, which describes the phishing test and the associated red flags: Article – Phish Test | January 2022 (mines.edu)

Phishing is the first step in most major cyber-security attacks. By itself, it can lead to possible financial loss and harassment. It is important to stop phishing for your own protection and to protect the School of Mines. Additional phishing training is required for everyone who clicks on a link in a phishing test. To take the security training, follow this link to the [5/10/15]-minute training course.
