With the recent news that many e-mail account providers have suffered security breaches due to phishing scams, all KLZ users need to make sure that they are not a victim of phishing.
Phishing, to describe it simply, is where someone tries to trick you in to giving them your username and password for an online account, whether it be your KLZ account or Bank Account. This usually comes in the form of an e-mail which asks you to re-enter your details for security purposes.
Whilst we have no recorded attempts of phishing on the KLZ, it is wise to remind you that we are all at risk from these fraudsters!
EIS will not ask you for your username and or password via an unsolicited e-mail. We will never ask you to confirm your details via e-mail. We recommend you do not use e-mail to send information on username and passwords as e-mail is not a secure form of communication. The KLZ does use encrypted traffic for all communication (https 128bit encryption) but once the mail has left the KLZ organisation it is open to interception.
We do also implement the latest mail scanning technologies with the KPSN Cisco IronPort Mail Relay, Microsoft Forefront for Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Exchange 2007 Hub and Transport Rules. We do try and make sure these technologies make every effort to block mail that is not suitable, but ineveitably some mails get through and are designed to evade such protection in place.
If you have any doubts about any mail in your account please contact us for advice.
The best advice would be, if in doubt, don't do it!
