Guess what? You’re not just browsing the web or downloading apps - YOU are part of the cybersecurity community! The IT and Security Team aren’t the only ‘players’ on the field. Being so interconnected in this day and age we CAN make a difference in this cat and mouse game with cyber criminals. Consider this:

  • Locking down our data keeps not only us but our friends, family, and clients safe, too.
  • Spot a suspicious message or clicked a phish by mistake? Alert the IT squad ASAP for some fast response action against any potential threat!

Whether you're exploring the internet, posting on social media, or handling business stuff, we all need to stay on guard. It's about having each other's backs, sharing smart moves, and keeping the digital world secure for everyone. 

Be a #CyberBoss in this very global online game - we need you!

Monday Social Post

What happens if you ignore a small drip under your faucet for a minute before addressing the issue? Nothing much more than a small towel couldn’t handle, right?

But what if you pretend it doesn’t exist - you ‘delete’ the pesky info from your mind - and the issue persists for hours, days, or even weeks? Well you’d have an issue no size towel could mop up and likely an expensive plumbing bill.

 The sooner an issue is known about, the sooner it can be handled with minimal intervention. 

Nothing earth shattering there - but most people don’t realize this also applies to cybersecurity. 

If you see a ‘leaky cyber faucet’ - something that looks off or you clicked before you realized it was not a legitimate message (hey, it happens and not the end of the world) - notify the security team

It’s a big help for us to handle issues quickly and gives us more time to do any damage control, if needed. We’re all on the same plumbing crew…er, team! 🪠💪

Show your employees how to fight cybercrime together as the digital Ghostbusters during Security Awareness Month. Copy/paste text into your email to send to your team and add resources via URL or get downloads here 📁

Subject: Casper the Not-So-Friendly-CyberGhost

Like a ghost, cyber criminals like to hang out once they’ve found a place to ‘haunt’. However, they don’t want to go bump in the night and make noise - they prefer to keep a low profile. 

But similar to the eerie feeling you get when you sense something spooky, you can also ‘sense’ something amiss with online activities too - strange wording from a contact in that last email? Spot something sketchy? These are ‘sightings’ you don’t want to keep to yourself. Instead, drop the IT or security department a quick message or use that Phish Report button.

Together, we are the Ghostbusters of the digital realm - you spot ‘em, we zap ‘em!  A quick notification of any suspicious activity can help us keep those pesky ghosts criminals at bay. 

Today’s short video is on Advanced Persistent Threats, meaning those ghosts that just keep hanging out undetected - learn what you can do to spot them and we’ll grab the Proton Blaster.

Wednesday Social Post

If there’s something strange,
In your inbox mail
Who you gonna call?

If there’s something off, 
But you just can’t tell
Who you gonna call?

I ain’t afraid of no phish
I ain’t afraid of no phish

If you’re seeing things
Strange in your email thread
Who can you call?

A  random URL
That’s got low cred
Who you gonna call?

You’re not all alone
Pick up the phone
And call
