Are your connections who they say they are?
This week I received a message from one of my first connections on LinkedIn. I had been connected with this person for a few years. I had done business with the company in question so I clicked through to LinkedIn to read the message.
Imagine my delight, I was being asked to tender for new work, fantastic!
It was then I noticed the link embedded in the message.
As ALTUS DIGITAL SERVICES sells sophisticated cyber security solutions I instantly recognised the link as a PHISHING link.
As we have multiple integrated solutions installed on our devices and servers I was confident if I clicked on the link the threat would be isolated.
Sure enough it was safely isolated and then deleted. But how many people would click on a link and be exposed to either a phishing e-mail or even worse ransomware?
With more people working from home, computer fraudsters are becoming more active in targeting executives through their personal accounts and devices.

Most people are posting their activity on social media so it is easy to know who to target.
