THE SMITH PORTAL

  • Moodle  Many instructors use the Moodle course management system to post syllabi, assignments, and readings.

  • BannerWeb   Click on the My Info tab or the My Student Info tab to access a variety of Personal Info, Smith Resources, Academic and other Account/Financial Info. 

  • Lynda.com   Every Smith student, faculty and staff receives unlimited access to Lynda.com, an extensive on-line library of over 2,000 courses on a variety of software & technology topics. 

 



DON’T LET YOUR EMAIL GET COMPROMISED OR HACKED

 

Phishing emails are increasingly common types of spam messages.  These emails are “spoofed” from family, friends, colleagues, banks and more. They appear to be legit from people you know, however they trick you into clicking on links or opening attached documents.  These compromised email messages are sent for the purpose of stealing your personal information.

 

What can you do?

 

  1. Never respond to emails requesting personal information.
  2. Banks and reputable companies don’t ask their customers for account details, they already have it.
  3. If you are unsure or question the email, check the actual website from another browsing tab.
  4. Pause on the link or document (Don’t click) and view the URL either in the pop-up or the lower left corner of your window.  Check the web address.  You are looking for similarities in the email address and the company name.  You are looking for https:// as this would be a secure site.  If you are unsure don’t click.

 

 

What to do if you responded to a phishing scam?

 

We strongly suggest you follow these steps outlined on our Tara site. Visit: http://www.smith.edu/its/tara/viruses/phishing.html
