Covid 19 Phishing Scams

Scammers often take advantage of health scares to distribute phishing scams. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to produce dozens of such campaigns, scaring recipients into clicking on harmful links or attachments in emails, text messages or social media posts. 

 

Examples of COVID-19 Scams

 

  • Fabricated notices from health organizations (e.g., the CDC or local/state health departments) 
  • Fake updates from an employer about policies or procedures to address the risk
  • Phony websites containing maps and dashboards 
  • Information about protecting yourself, your children or your community that contains malicious links or attachments
  • Charitable appeals to help victims of the virus, which are not legitimate
  • Requests to send checks or change bank account routing numbers to different addresses because of working from home

 

How to Protect Against COVID-19/Coronavirus Scams

 

Be vigilant for COVID-19/coronavirus scams during the coming weeks. If you suspect a message may be a phishing scam, please report it by sending an email to helpdesk@go2itgroup.com, or calling us direct at 440-471-8210 option 4.  Always double check the actual sending address of an email, not just the name.  Legitimate email accounts can also become hijacked, so if any sensitive information is ever asked for, reach out to your contact on a verified phone number that you have worked with in the past.  If ever in doubt, never hesitate to reach out to us!

 

Tips for spotting phishing scams—along with detailed instructions for reporting suspicious email messages—are available by reaching out go Go2IT.  Go2IT offers several solutions to help block and mitigate these attacks, as well as train your employees on what to look out for. Go directly to health or government sites, such as cdc.gov/coronavirus, to find updated information about the virus and its spread.

These resources include tools and applications like data storage, servers, databases, networking, and software.  As long as an electronic device has access to the web, it has access to the data and the software programs to run it. Cloud computing depends on resource sharing, rather than using local servers or individual devices to host applications. It mostly only allows the application software to function when internet enabled devices are used.   There are four types of Cloud Computing you should learn about because they serve a broad range of functions over the internet- like virtual and storage servers: applications and authorization for desktop applications.   THE PUBLIC CLOUD Public cloud is best for businesses which have requirements that require managing the load; host application that is, Software-as-a-Service and manage applications which are used by many users.

A promising new technology trend is on the rise. Internet Of Things, or IoT. Have you heard of it? Many “things” are now being built with WiFi connectivity, meaning they can be connected to the Internet, and to each other.  The Internet of Things is a way of the future and has already enabled devices, home appliances, cars and much more to be connected to and exchange data over the Internet.   As consumers, we’re already using IoT and may not even realize it. We can lock our doors remotely, preheat ovens on our way home, track our fitness on our watches. However, businesses also have much to gain now and in the near future. The IoT can enable better safety, efficiency and decision making for businesses as data is collected and analyzed. It can enable predictive maintenance, speed up medical care, improve customer service, and offer benefits we haven’t even imagined yet.   We’re only in the beginning stages of this new technology trend: Forecasts suggest that by 2030 an average of 50 billion of these IoT devices will be in use around the world, creating a massive web of interconnected devices spanning everything from smartphones to kitchen appliances. The global spending on the Internet of Things (IoT) is forecast to reach 1.1 trillion U.S. dollars in 2022.   If you wish to step foot in this trending technology, you will have to learn about Information security, AI and machine learning fundamentals, networking, hardware
