If something seems weird about an email or someone seems out of place, say something. Be vigilant. For example, if you receive an email that asks you to download a patch or new software, contact the Help Desk.
The same goes for physical security. If someone is loitering by a locked door or digging through a dumpster say something.
Don’t be afraid to stop, challenge, and authenticate. Stopping someone can be as simple as saying, Hi! Can I help you? The next step is to find out if the person should be there or not. If you don’t feel comfortable, ask someone else who works here what he/she thinks.
Finally, ensure the person is who he/she says and involve the security officer when appropriate. It’s better to engage someone who does belong than to ignore someone who doesn’t. In the end, trust your gut. If you see something that doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t! Say something!
