Cyber Roundup – May 2023
By Thomas J. DeMayo, Partner, Cybersecurity and Privacy Advisory
As I was preparing this Cyber Roundup, my iPhone rang with a text from Bizarro World (just joking) stating that my shipment could not be delivered due to an unpaid duty fee (not joking). As I did not order anything nor, sadly, did I expect a gift package, I deemed it a scam. Even if I had a pending order, I would not click on the link provided, but, rather, telephone the vendor.
If our readers recall, five years ago when we started this publication, we reported on email scams, then text scams, then personal identity incursions, ransomware incidences and on other cyber infiltrations – both personal and corporate – et al. Now, artificial intelligence (AI) incidents are being reported. There is no slowdown to cyber criminality, including selling scams online. Cyber Roundup is published monthly to keep our readers updated. We are here to answer your questions, cyber train your staff and help you develop cyber defenses.
