October is Security Awareness Month
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. While the Coronavirus pandemic is creating new challenges, there is one group using this time as an opportunity to disrupt our personal and professional lives – cybercriminals. Security awareness does not take time off, and bad actors often use times of fear, uncertainty, and doubt to further their efforts to compromise businesses and individuals for reprehensible reasons. Several major attacks and numerous cyber scams have been exposed and we all need to be on high alert. ITS wants to ensure you have the most recent guidance to help ensure no one falls victim to these threats:
- United States Secret Service Phishing Press Release
- Department of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Current Cyber Scams
- Consumer Reports Phishing Scams
Please be extra vigilant and incorporate these best practices into your daily routine:
- Practice good cyber carefulness including slowing down to help recognize red flags.
- Think twice before you click or respond to emails and verify that requests are legitimate, especially financial transactions.
- Only use trusted sources to locate current information about COVID-19.
- Report suspicious activity to the appropriate individuals including Colorado College ITS and our IT security resources.
