In partnership with the Department of Homeland Security, the National Cyber Security Alliance has released information on recognizing cyber crime and how to protect yourself online. Recommendations include deleting suspicious communications, being wary of "too good to be true" offers, and using strong authentication. The #CyberAware Tip of the Week is to keep a clean machine: make sure the security software on all your electronic devices is updated.
US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review the Stop.Think.Connect. Phishing Tip Card and the US-CERT Tip Understanding Patches for additional information. Visit the US-CERT website for articles on Week 1 and Week 2 of the campaign.
