The most important message to convey to anyone who gets an email from CCRI Support Team, Administrator, register, Support, etc is that IT will never ask for confidential information in an email. This includes passwords, DOB or even personal information like your name or address. Furthermore, you should avoid clicking on links in emails that direct you to secure areas as they may potentially be spoofed web pages. Please visit our virus homepage.
If ever you get an email that seems suspect, please make sure you call the IT Help Desk at 825.1112 to confirm.
