CISA’s Advice on Countering Phishing
The US Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has published an advisory on best practices to thwart email-based phishing attacks. The advisory is aimed at election-related entities, but the advice is relevant for anyone.
“Malicious cyber actors have been known to use sophisticated phishing operations to target political parties and campaigns, think tanks, civic organizations, and associated individuals,” the advisory states. “Email systems are the preferred vector for initiating malicious cyber operations. Recent reporting shows 32 percent of breaches involve phishing attacks, and 78 percent of cyber-espionage incidents are enabled by phishing.”
