Security Alerts Now is a good time to coordinate with your internal Security Team and send security alerts to employees. It is important to send reminders about always using good cyber hygiene and security measures. Reminders can include the following tips to protect employees, to protect IT infrastructure, and to help stop criminal activity: • Do not open attachments or click links within emails from senders that are not personally recognized. • Do not provide your username, password, date of birth, social security number, financial data, or other personal information in response to an email or robocall. • Always verify the web address of legitimate websites and manually type them into your browser. • Check for misspellings or wrong domains within a link (for example, an address that should end in a ".gov" ends in “.com" instead). • Hover the mouse over links to confirm valid links underneath. • Apply an extra level of caution relative to opening any emails or clicking on any links from people or companies not specifically known to you. • Be wary of fake emails from large companies. There are many 'knock-off" schemes that try to mirror logos and design feel for large companies such as Bank of America or Amazon. • Stop and think. Call to ask for a second opinion before opening any links/emails if something doesn't seem right. • Slow down. Cybercriminals rely on people moving too fast . . . so now is the time to slow down and be cautious.
