Report a phish

Why reporting matters

When you report a phishing attempt, you accomplish two critical tasks:

  • Helping the proper authorities catch and bring phishers to justice
  • Protecting your community from being victims of the same phishing attack

That's why it is critical not to just recognize and rethink—but also to report

At IU, once a reported phish is analyzed and confirmed, our policy and security teams can take steps to protect everyone else on the IU network.

When you report suspected phishing emails correctly through the provided IU channels, you help IU mitigate attacks early and efficiently.
