MiraCosta Deploys Service to Help Protect Users from Email Threats 💻

MiraCosta College has deployed a service to help protect against specific threats that are distributed via email, including phishing and targeted attacks. These threats originate from malicious web sites, which are triggered when users click on links (URLs) in email messages.

Messages containing these links often look legitimate, even to the discerning eye. This service helps to protect you and MiraCosta by blocking access to URLs diagnosed as malicious. A malicious message may not always be detected right away, so it’s important that users continue to carefully choose what they click on.


To learn more about security, MiraCosta offers brief tutorials available to employees. To access the tutorials, please go to the MiraCosta College website A-Z directory. Click Academic Information Services. There you’ll see Security Training. When prompted, logon with your MiraCosta username and password. You might find the “Targeted Attacks” and “Email and Phishing” videos of interest.


If you question the legitimacy of a message, please contact the MiraCosta Help Desk via phone at 760.795.6850 or open an online support request. To open a Help Desk request, please go to the MiraCosta College website A-Z directory. Select H, then select Help Desk, Employee.
