For Our Employees

Phishing Alert - WakeMed Email Address Compromised; Passwords Reset

Earlier this week, a number of employees received a notification from a WakeMed email address asking them to review and sign a protected document via DocuSign. This was a phishing attempt and not a legitimate email. In an effort to contain this phishing attempt, the network passwords of everyone who received this email were reset. If you experience issues logging in, your password may have been reset. Please contact the IS Service Desk at 919-3350-8700 for assistance.
