Avoiding the Scam! Better Act Fast!

Cybersecurity Situations & Awareness

Fraudsters have a huge toolkit of tricks to pull from. Let's take a case of social engineering – also known as phishing. Hackers can take advantage of the fact that a company is engaged in a merger and/or acquisition, and can target employees who are responsible for personally identifiable information with emails that appeared to be from others within the organization. It happens all the time... especially when policies and procedures are not followed.
