Please beware of suspicious text messages, phone calls or emails that appear to come from CommonSpirit Health’s CEO and/or other executives.
CommonSpirit Cybersecurity has received multiple reports from employees who have received a suspicious text message asking that they help purchase and transfer funds via gift cards. Scams can be sent through a spoofed ID, so the name and phone number look like it’s coming from a trustworthy source.
- If you receive any text message, phone call or email from a CommonSpirit employee that seems odd, out of context or is an unusual request, please report it to Cybersecurity:
- Suspicious text/phone call – report it here.
- Suspicious email – report it using the Phish Alarm button in Gmail (right-side toolbar).
- Even if you feel the message could be true, please verify if the sender and request are legitimate.
- Never share your personal information or credentials.
- Please be advised that CommonSpirit executives will never ask you to purchase items or transfer funds in this manner.
As a reminder, the annual cybersecurity education assignment is now available in Pathways and must be completed by all employees by Oct. 31. Now’s a great time to take the course and help keep our ministry secure.
