Contacting the Information Security Team, or reporting a security incident

Contact details for the Information Security team and who to contact in the event of a breach.

Reporting an Information Security Breach

If you are the victim of an information security attack: phishing, a computer virus infection, or even receive an email message that you think may leave other University members particularly vulnerable, report it to the IS Helpline:

You can send the suspicious email as an attachment to is.helpline@ed.ac.uk where it will be collated with other reports of the same attack. 

Sending the email as an attachment preserves the email headers and gives us a better chance of stopping any further attempts to propagate the email.

Please do not send screenshots or forwarded copies of the email, as it will not give us this data.
