Email security update for schools

online-security-blog-banner

It has been brought to our attention that we have had a couple of instances where a rule has been set up within Microsoft Outlook email client to forward all emails to a different email address.

We believe this may have come via a link that someone in the school has inadvertently clicked on within an email sent to them.

Important note: Never enter your Office 365 details from a link you have been sent.

Below is some useful guides for your to downloads.
