Did you know…

We use Proofpoint to protect KYCC from spam and malicious links. It catches both known and unknown malicious threats.

When Proofpoint is uncertain whether an email is spam, it will separate it and send you a quarantine message.

You can block the message and sender or preview it safely in quarantine.

Or you can release it from quarantine and into your inbox, or even release it and approve the sender, so they bypass the quarantine next time.

You can also sign in to your account and see your blocked sender and approved sender lists. Some of it is hard to read, but it’s there for you.

Now you know!

The thing about the oxygen mask 

It feels odd to hear the flight attendants remind us to put on our own mask before helping others. That’s backward, isn’t it?

The theory is that if you can’t breathe, it’s probable that you’re going to have a hard time lending a hand.

In our daily lives, the oxygen mask might be metaphorical, and the insecurity/threat might be invented, but it still feels real.

It’s worth remembering that the next time someone doesn’t act in a way you expect. It might be that they’re having a little trouble on their own, trouble you might not even be aware of.
