Candidates Security & Phishing Awareness

 

At Preston Recruiting Consultants (PRC), we prioritize the security and privacy of our candidates' information. As part of our commitment to safeguarding your data and ensuring a secure recruitment process, we have implemented comprehensive security measures and phishing awareness protocols. Please familiarize yourself with the following guidelines to protect yourself against potential security threats and phishing attacks:

 

1. **Email Security**:

   - Be cautious of unexpected emails requesting personal or sensitive information, such as login credentials, financial details, or identification documents.

   - Verify the authenticity of email senders before responding or clicking on any links or attachments.

   - Look out for suspicious signs, such as misspelled email addresses, urgent requests for information, or offers that seem too good to be true.

   - Report any suspicious emails to privacy@theprc.co.uk for further investigation.

 

2. **Phishing Awareness**:

   - Exercise caution when clicking on links or downloading attachments from unfamiliar or unsolicited emails.

   - Be wary of emails that create a sense of urgency or pressure you to take immediate action, such as providing sensitive information or clicking on a link to avoid consequences.

   - Check the URL of websites before entering any login credentials or personal information to ensure they are legitimate and secure.

   - Never share your login credentials, passwords, or other sensitive information via email or unfamiliar websites.

   - If you receive a suspicious email claiming to be from PRC, contact us directly through our official channels to verify its authenticity.

 

3. **Password Security**:

   - Create strong, unique passwords for your PRC candidate account and avoid using the same password for multiple accounts.

   - Regularly update your passwords and enable multi-factor authentication whenever possible to add an extra layer of security to your account.

   - Avoid sharing your passwords with anyone else, including colleagues or third-party recruiters, and refrain from writing them down in easily accessible locations.

 

4. **Data Protection**:

   - Only provide personal or sensitive information to trusted sources and secure websites.

   - Review privacy policies and terms of service before sharing your information with third-party recruiters or job boards.

   - Exercise caution when uploading documents or filling out online forms, and ensure that the website is encrypted and secure.

   - Report any potential data breaches or unauthorized access to your personal information to privacy@theprc.co.uk immediately.

 

By following these security best practices and remaining vigilant against phishing attempts, you can help us maintain a secure and trustworthy recruitment process for all candidates. If you have any questions or concerns about security or phishing, please don't hesitate to contact us at privacy@theprc.co.uk.
