In recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has released an article to raise awareness of phishing and spearphishing. The article provides guidance on recognizing and avoiding these types of attacks.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages users to review the FBI article and CISA’s Tip on Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks. For more information on NCSAM, see the NCSAM 2019 webpage and the NCSAM 2019 Toolkit. Users can report suspected attacks to their local FBI office or to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov.
The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) has released a cybersecurity guide for small businesses. The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has redistributed the guide and encourages small business owners and administrators to review the guide, which provides checklists to help small businesses protect themselves against common cybersecurity incidents.
