Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
Hackers are phising with Corona-Virus and HIV themed emails
This is honestly quite interesting to me because it shows the ingenuity and resourcefulness of hackers. At this point in time there is pretty much a world-wide panic to this virus; the hackers are taking advantage of this emotional state by spreading malware contained in spreadsheets through emails claiming to be from real health organizations. The articles says this has been especially prevalent in Italy which has been battling the new virus. I would suspect that as ‘work from home’ and quarantining becomes more prevalent (probably coming to the US very soon), we will see more attacks like this. I find it fascinating how opportunistic the bad guys can be. They are taking advantage of mass psychology, and I image that as bordum becomes more widespread due to shut downs, we actually may see even more attacks like this.
