UIT Service Advisory


Please share this information with your teams.  UIT will be upgrading the Cofense Phishing button for G Suite.  The current phishing button has become outdated due to Google’s changes in their API.

UIT has received the latest version of the application and will be deploying a fresh install.  The time to upgrade will be from tomorrow, Wednesday, August 5, 8:30 a.m. to Thursday, August 6, 3:30 p.m.  One day will be dedicated to removing the old version and half a day to implement the new one.
