Continual improvement of anti-phishing filters: Area 1

To continue to improve IT security at U-M, the university is adding Area 1 Security to its mix of anti-phishing defenses. By the end of March, all U-M campuses—UM-Ann Arbor, UM-Dearborn, UM-Flint, and Michigan Medicine—will see fewer phishing emails thanks to this new tool. 

  • No action is needed on your part. 
  • For U-M Google users, incoming emails that Area 1 identifies as likely phishes are moved to your Spam folder. 
  • For Michigan Medicine Outlook Exchange users, the phishing emails are automatically deleted.
