Attempted Phishing Attack

We have recently become aware of an attempted phishing attack badged as “Subject: RE: BVA BDRC New Project”. The email asks you to click on a link and then log in using your Office 365 log in details. Needless to say, if you receive such an email, allegedly from us, please do not click on the link or log in (and if you have, make sure you change your log in password as soon as possible). It was a very slick email operation (including a “reply” sent to people who queried if it was a genuine email) so we have reminded all staff to be on their guard and reiterated the training they have already been given to help them spot potential threats. We have also set up additional IT protocols across the BVA Group in response to this event.

If you have any concerns please do get in touch.
