Know What Your Team Needs? Teams.

Did you know that 80% of employee time is spent collaborating with others? That begs the question: Are you giving your teams tools to make working together seamless?

Here at ITP, we use Microsoft Teams. It’s a tool enabled in Office 365 that provides one-on-one and group chat, screen sharing, and audio/video calls. It’s super slick – and it’s making huge improvements in team profitability and productivity.

Beware This Office 365 Phishing Campaign

The latest phishing attack making the rounds will really put your employees’ cybersecurity awareness to the test.

The phishing email pretends to be from the “Office 365 Team” alerting recipients of an unusual amount of file deletions occurring on their account. It then encourages them to click a link to review the alert. The link takes them to a fake Microsoft login page that captures their login credentials.

For Microsoft accounts and logins, login forms will come from,,, and domains only. If you encounter a Microsoft login form from any other URL, avoid it.
