Cybersecurity Alert: Watch Out for Fake CIA Emails

email scamHave You Received Any Malicious Emails?

The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) warns that malicious emails claiming to be from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have been sent to members of the public in Australia as well as people overseas. These emails state personal details about the recipient, including their address, contact information, and details about their relatives.

How to Stay Safe From Malicious Emails

Threat-based impersonation schemes are fairly common. Scammers will often pretend to be from a government agency or well-known company to scare you into handing over money or personal information. For the recipients of these scam emails, the best course of action is to simply not respond and delete the email as soon as possible. Recipients should not try to contact or make any sort of payments to the sender.

The Final Word

If you receive uninvited or unexpected messages, whether over the phone, by email, or in person, always consider the possibility that it may be a scam. To stay safe from malicious emails, make sure to verify the identity of the contact through an independent source, speak to someone you trust about what happened, and avoid giving away personal information to people you don’t know or trust. Contact us for your company's IT security needs.
