Dear Partners,

(U//FOUO) Attached is the Homeland Intelligence Article: Cyber Actors Almost Certainly View Growing Telework During the Novel Coronavirus Pandemic as an Opportunity to Exploit Enterprise Networks, dated 30 March 2020.

A sobering reminder that it’s all the more important to practice good cyber hygiene during this unprecedented time. One key quote near the end of the article:
“(U) CISA encourages caution when handling any e-mail with a COVID-19-related subject line, attachment, or hyperlink, and be wary of social media pleas, texts, or calls related to COVID-19. Cyber actors may send e-mails with malicious attachments or links to fraudulent websites to trick victims into revealing sensitive information or donating to fraudulent charities or causes.”
