Defending against COVID-19 Cyber Scams

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) warns individuals to remain vigilant for scams related to COVID-19. Cyber actors may send emails with malicious attachments or links to fraudulent websites to trick victims into revealing sensitive information or donating to fraudulent charities or causes (social engineering). Exercise caution in handling any email with a COVID-19-related subject line, attachment, or hyperlink, and be wary of social media pleas, texts, or calls related to COVID-19.

We encourage you to remain vigilant and take the following precautions:

If you suspect a COVID-19 scam, any other type of attempt for you to disclose sensitive information, or an urgent request to make gift card or similar purchases, please contact the NEOMED Help Desk as soon as possible.
