A New Way to Report Phishing
Partners HealthCare recently introduced a “Report Phishing” button in Microsoft Outlook on Partners private-build desktops and mobile-build laptops. The button will make it easier for users to report suspicious emails to the Partners Information Security team. Whenever you receive an email that you think is a phishing attempt, do not open or reply to the message. Highlight the message in your inbox and click the “Report Phishing” button now located on your Outlook toolbar. After reporting, select “OK” and a screen message confirms your submission to email@example.com. If you do not see the “Report Phishing” button, manually forward the message as attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more.
