False Positive

Always follow your organisation's official security guidelines when reporting suspicious emails.

 

What is a False Positive?

False Positive is not a dangerous email and is also not considered as a spam. The email may have elements that make you consider it as a threat – but the content including the links, the attachments and the sender’s address are not dangerous, making the email a False Positive.

A typical false positive email can be your company's internal newsletter or a introduction to a new tool in your organisation, which may look unexpected or suspicious to you, but is neither spam nor a malicious attack. If you are unsure whether an email is real, please reach out to your cyber security team for further assistance.
