Interested in staying up-to-date on cyber-schemes and cyber-fraud affecting individuals and businesses in your area? The Cyber Task Force division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation provides “FBI Private Industry Notifications” email alerts that contain details related to cyber-incidents that the FBI has identified as already impacting or having a high likelihood of impacting individuals and businesses in your area. The incidents identified range from malware that has infected the systems of financial institutions and may be directly impacting your online banking accounts to social engineering schemes that result in the compromise of business email accounts. These alerts can be a useful tool for both individuals and businesses to help stay attuned to potential threats that may directly affect you.
