Cyber security

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month and UD is preparing to scale up efforts to educate the campus community about cyber threats.

IHRC grants

The Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center in the University of Delaware's College of Arts and Sciences is offering three categories of grant support this year.

Even though the message appears to come from University IT staff, the email is a phishing scam designed to get you to click a link to harvest your personal information. 

If you hover your computer’s mouse over the link that allegedly goes to UD’s Webmail service, you’ll see that the link would really take you to a suspect site.
