IT Policy on Phishing
The language of the KnowBe4 software refers to a “Policy”. The following text is the “IT Policy on Phishing” you will be asked to approve after your initial training on the Danger Zone.
Scope: All Urbana City Network Users
Purpose: To clearly define the process for “phishing” users of the City Network, in order to promote computer security and protect the City, its employees, and its citizens.
Definition: “Phishing” is sending e-mails that encourage recipients to take actions that could harm computers, networks, or compromise information.
Policy: By clicking on “I acknowledge I have Read and Understand the Policy” in the KnowBe4 training, you are agreeing that:
- You have completed the “Danger Zone” training on e-mail security
- Your City e-mail account will now receive “phishing” e-mails that you should ignore or delete.
- If you take the wrong action from a phishing e-mail, you will be assigned additional training.
