Take control of computer security

May is Internal Audit Awareness Month, and UF Health Shands Audit Services has a few tips on how you can protect organizational and personal assets from privacy breaches, exposed records and malware:

  • Be aware of phishing scams where fraudsters send official-looking — but fake — emails and/or texts to trick you into giving out information or loading malware onto your devices.
  • Always delete these emails and/or texts; never reply or click links. Even clicking once could lead to significant problems.
  • Report anything out of the ordinary with your account or your computer.
