Information Security Reporting and Resources


A security incident is a threat or possible compromise involving non-public institutional data. Non-public data is any data that is not posted on a website or made public on a regular basis through reports and other means.

If you have experienced what you think is a possible security incident, you must report it immediately by clicking on the Report Security Issue button on this page. 

Examples of known or suspected security incidents that must be reported:

  • Compromise of user credentials (when there is reason to believe this has led to unauthorized access or loss of confidential data)

  • Malware or virus-infected computer (when there is reason to believe this has led to unauthorized access or loss of confidential data)

What Should You Do? 

If you believe that you receive a phishing or spam email:

  • Do not respond or reply to the email in any way; replying shows that your email address is real and can lead to further attacks.
  • Don't click on any link in a suspicious email; just clicking a link can open your computer to attack from a virus or other malware.
  • Don't open or print any attachment to the email; attachments may contain malicious code which can take over your computer.
  • If you signed in with your username and password, please change your password ASAP.
  • Delete an unverified suspicious email and purge from your 'Deleted' mail folder.
  • Verify a suspicious email by contacting the sender.
