Compromised System Make No Business Nor Individual Immune from Cybercrime- 007
Yes, you got that RIGHT. No business nor individual is immune from cybercrime! The theft of personal data and intellectual property will allow the ability to turn raw data into money-spinning opportunities. Hence, the response to cybercrime boils down to risk management where compromised information and lack of proper infrastructure could cause severe business impact at a greater speed and scale than ever before. How blind are we on this new age attack?
WHAT IS PHISHING?
For instance, phishing emails using Covid-19 themes to deceive the audience and malware attacks used by fraudsters today to mislead the innocent. Taking it as face value, these individuals will fall ambit the trap and only realize that he/she has been duped once the “damage” is done. As such, awareness is key in ensuring one is NOT fooled or victimized. Our team puts the highest precaution on this. Check out an example of a phishing attempt:
The name was actually the founder of the employee’s company with an urgent subject title for a reply. However, when you check out the email, it is a foreign email that doesn’t belong to the company. Despite the simplicity of “confirming if you’re available”, this is the start of the act of phishing.
In the case of dealing with MoneyMatch, please ensure that the email domain is always from email@example.com and not @moneymatch.com or moneymatch.org or @monymtch.co. The phishing email address will look like the original company email address, therefore do make sure that the email address is genuine before accessing and responding to it.
