RSS SANS Institute Security Awareness Tip of the Day

  • Messaging / Smishing Attacks
    Cyber attackers can just as easily trick or fool you in messaging apps as they can in email. Be on the look-out for scams or attacks via apps such as Slack, Skype, WhatsApp or event simple text messaging. The most common clues are tremendous sense of urgency or curioustiy.
  • Recording Conference Calls
    When hosting or attending conference calls, only record the call if you have prior permission, a work related need to record the call, and you make sure everyone on the call knows it will be recorded.
  • Never Respond to Emails Asking for Personal Information
    Companies you do business with should never ask for your account information, credit card numbers or password in an email. If you have any questions about an email you receive that supposedly came from your financial institution or service provider, find their number on their website and call them.

  • Attending a Video Conference
    When attending a video conference, make sure you are using the latest version of the conferencing software. In addition, if you are using the video option make sure there is nothing sensitive behind you that others would see.
