Re: External Email Banner Notification Broad Launch – September 30

Dear colleagues,

As you may be aware, since March 2020 Information Security and Enterprise Applications and Solutions Integration have worked to introduce external email notification banners for UTmail+ (Office 365).

This banner will help to protect U of T from hacking and phishing attempts, and will also protect our faculty, staff and students’ valuable information. These banners will appear on all emails originating from outside the University of Toronto systems.

To date, we have piloted and rolled this banner out to 1,000 users across all three campuses and it has been positively received. As the final phase of this project, we plan to roll the banner out to all remaining faculty, staff and students on September 30.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our pilot program and provided feedback, and we look forward to further improving cyber security for the U of T community.

Information Security and Enterprise Applications and Solutions Integration
