Defending Against COVID-19 Cybersecurity Scams
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has published a warning encouraging individuals to be on high alert for phishing, social engineering and disinformation campaigns relating to COVID-19. Taking the following precautions will help protect you from scams and cyber-attacks.
- Use trusted sources such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC)—for up-to-date, fact-based information on COVID-19.
- Be wary of unsolicited emails with links and attachments, even if they claim to be from a government agency or COVID-19 experts.
- Ignore online offers and scam calls on reserving vaccinations. Trusted sources will release information regarding medical breakthroughs.
- Do not reveal personal or financial information over email, and do not respond to email solicitations for this information.
- Verify a charity’s authenticity before making donations. Do your own research. If you are unsure about a request through social media or a crowdfunding site, you can always go directly to a charity’s website and donate that way. Credit cards are the safest way to pay online - Never make donations via gift cards or wire transfers.
