SAO making our outgoing emails cyber-safer

Nov 12, 2020

The State Auditor's Office is changing some of the emails we send every week to better align with cybersecurity best practices.

Beginning the week of Nov. 9, emails we send related to the publication of audit reports no longer will contain attachments nor embedded links. We are working to reduce the number of potential targets for attack by cyber-criminals while maintaining timely communication with you.

Email messages that alert recipients when we publish reports will now have two features:

  • Information to help you confirm the email is truly from us; and
  • Instructions on how to find new reports on our website,

SAO is committed to continuous improvement in our own operations as well as transparent communication with you. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact your government's audit contact, email, or call 564-999-0950.
