Current Threats

Listed below are examples of the types of malicious cyber activity currently being seen around the world. As you know attackers take advantage of any major news or escalated event to craft malicious emails or websites.  Also, if you are working remotely ensure you follow cyber safety best practices and use security safeguards to minimize the cyber risk to our organization (e.g. VPN, Antimalware, Firewall settings, etc.).  Attackers will specifically target remote workers as a way to gain access and cause harm to our organization.
