In the current global climate we need to be extra alert to phishing attacks and scams.
To help with phishing awareness we’ve made a cybersecurity training course available to students in Moodle (it will be on the main course dashboard). I invite students to go through this short course and take the quiz at the end.
Everyone who has a login to the Luther Seminary network has a role to play to keep our digital campus secure. Phishers are not always interested in you or your information. They’re often interested in using your login and email account to phish other people at the seminary who have access to valuable personal information.
Completing the course earns you badge in Moodle. At 3 p.m. May 27 we’ll give one random person who earned the badge a set of Apple Airpods. Winner will be notified by email.
Reported employee cases: 3
Reported student cases: 0
Students in quarantine or isolation: 0
Reported cases only include students and employees who have been on campus within a period of time during which they may have been contagious. According to the CDC this includes two days prior to the onset of symptoms or a positive test.
If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, or if you are an unvaccinated individual who has been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 (close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of that person for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period), please report that to the appropriate person. For employees, that person is Michael Morrow (firstname.lastname@example.org). Students should contact Leon Rodrigues (email@example.com).
Contact Tracing Protocol
When an on-campus case of COVID-19 is reported, that person is first asked to stay off-campus and quarantine in accordance with CDC guidelines. In addition, the seminary takes two steps for contact tracing:
1. The Minnesota Department of Health is notified, per guidelines for institutions of higher education
2. The person reporting the case is asked to identify “close contacts”; the close contacts identified are notified of the exposure and asked to follow CDC guidelines for testing and quarantining (quarantine applies only to close contacts who are unvaccinated).
