Tech Tip: Beware phishing email scams 

With another recent cyber virus, it’s important to remember to beware of phishing attempts here on the King County network.

KCIT would like to remind you that phishing is the practice of sending emails that look like they are from reputable sources in an attempt to obtain information which gives outsiders access to King County systems. The goal is to get personal information such as passwords and credit card numbers. Phishing is a constant threat to every organization.

Remember, if you receive an email asking you to provide any information, especially your login name and password, this could be phishing and you should be suspicious. 

In addition, be cautious of emails with attachments from someone that you do not know or one that you did not expect. These can contain malicious software and compromise your computer.

If you have concerns or questions, please contact the KCIT Service Center at 206-263-HELP (4357) or log a ticket at helpticket@kingcounty.gov
