Protecting your Agency from Phishing
Posted by Eric Stuhl | September 6, 2019
As we spend an increasingly large percentage of our time online, we’ve become aware of the malicious tactics used to trick us into downloading malware or betraying our credentials. Even as our built-in threat detection improves, we risk letting it run on autopilot. When we’re not paying attention, serious trouble can take us by surprise.
In the wake of a series of ransomware attacks that crippled local governments across the country, IT managers who are looking for ways to better protect employees from phishing attacks have realized that human error can be tricky to reduce and all but impossible to avoid. Email, in particular, is one front where employees tend to let their guard down. But there are steps government IT teams can take to mitigate the possible damage from a phishing attack, protect their critical systems and ensure continuity of service. Eric Stuhl, Force 3’s Director, Security and Enterprise, discusses these steps here on NextGov.
