Self help


Email is a quick and easy way to communicate, however suspicious or unsolicited emails can be used to steal your electronic identity, compromise your personal information or cause malicious intent.

As email attacks become more sophisticated and increase in regularity, the University has become a target for cyber threats. To mitigate risk, we have implemented the Griffith email security system, (Mimecast) to filter email and improve protection against spam, junk email and messages containing suspicious content. The 4 key features Mimecast use to protect your email are:

  1. Spam Digest
  2. Impersonation (Whaling) Protect
  3. URL Protect
  4. Attachment Security

Important information about Mimecast
