This is the season to get hacked!
Around Christmas time we see the amount of attacks on websites, work stations, servers, businesses, and cloud infrastructure increase exponentially. Make sure that your systems are patched and are up to date, and be on your toes for any scam calls, letters or emails because they are an all time high around now.
Pay Attention to the ATO Scam
A great example of this would be the $800,000 that is being taken over the last four weeks from the current scam that's going around about the ATO, so very close to home there. Be on the look out. Be diligent. If someone asks for something and they don't know your name, ask them for more details. They should know who you are. When they say your birthdate, and your first name, and your last name and your address then you can talk to them.
Delete Scam Emails
Otherwise, look up the details online if you get a suspicious call. You're not friends with anyone in Nigeria. You're not, so just delete that email. Don't even, ignore it. Don't. This goes for most emails that have that same sort of thing. Regardless of what they say, you might or might not have the three inch tool set, but you need to just make sure, just delete them. Not important. Be on the look out. Make sure you get rid of any potential harms. Don't fall victim. Merry Christmas!
