Information Security Notice

LMU has seen an increased number of fraudulent emails designed to trick recipients into clicking links, opening attachments, or taking other actions since the start of COVID-19.

Specifically, there have been a large number of attempted Email Impersonation Scams, where the sender impersonates a member of LMU personnel in a position of authority. They request for the target to perform money transfers, pay invoices, or send sensitive data.

Learn more about how to recognize these phishing emails to protect yourself and the campus.
