This is how to keep your data safe
Consider your own clicking behaviour. The university's spam filter will stop many phishing emails to your Radboud account. But it is always important to remain critical of e-mails, text messages, apps and phone calls yourself. Real and fake messages are almost indistinguishable. If you receive an 'unexpected' message, wait 3 seconds before clicking on a link or attachment and check that everything is correct.
If you use private devices for work or study, a good virus scan and vigilance is also important, because criminals can find an entry point to university systems through that route too.
