During National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the FBI joins in asking every user of a connected device to Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.  Diamond Business Communication supports this cause and will be posting 31 Days of Cybersecurity Tips.

Tip #22 Confirm request via multiple lines of communications Identity spoofing and phishing attacks are the single most successful method behind data breaches because they overlap user negligence. Like the popular CEO fraud email requesting to their accounting department to wire money to certain accounts.  Communicate often with employees specific things that you will never do. This may include buying gift cards or asking them to take any sort of official action on the basis of an email. Setup a check list such as a phone call verification before any such actions are taken.
