COVID 19 Phishing Attacks

The CSP, Inc. team wants to update you regarding cybersecurity and the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, cybercriminals are taking advantage of this challenging, trying time by launching a range of phishing attacks.

We put together a few tips to help you stay safe:

  • Think before you click a link or download an attachment. If you’re unsure, don’t click or download.
  • Don’t respond to any requests for sensitive information, even if it’s supposedly to update payment or login information with an account.
  • Use well-known websites, such as the CDC or WHO, to stay up-to-date on coronavirus information.
  • Hover over the sender’s email address to verify whether or not it’s a legitimate domain from a familiar organization.
  • Remember that legitimate organizations won’t ask you to update account information or send personal data via email.
