Government contractors, beware!
There’s been an increase in recent spear-phishing campaigns targeting government contractors. An urgent reminder to protect your credentials including your Microsoft 360 login from falling into the wrong hands.
These cyber criminals are disguising themselves as government agencies such as, the Department of Labor, Transportation, and Commerce to gain access to you and your companies highly sensitive assets.
” Phishing has been a problem for years but when they are targeted they become catastrophic for an organization,” said OnDefend COO Billy Steeghs.
These spear-phishing attack campaigns are well crafted and can evade legacy tech like secure email gateways (SEGs). These recent attacks will look like an official government email with near-authentic logos, signature blocks and detailed instructions. Attackers are also switching from PDF attachments to malicious links, which increases the critical need to insulate end users from dangerous links.
Bottom line, don’t click on any links you cannot verify to be true. It will cost you.
