Data Breach of

You may have seen that a employee became a recent victim to a phishing scam that resulted in turning over the company’s customer database. As a result, the scammers have been using the names and e-mails to spread an extensive malware attack throughout the company, supposedly sent by the Federal Trade Commission!!!!

Once again the need for users to be educated on what to look for when confronted with a phishing scam. The best security measures in the world cannot compensate for the threat of uneducated users and the inevitable data loss that can follow. But good awareness/education combined with a form of Two Factor Authentication can start to reduce the risks that businesses face.
