CISA Warnings Highlight Myriad Security Threats (Decipher)


The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has issued several alerts over the past week warning government agencies and other private sector organizations to be vigilant about security, especially with the bulk of the workforce working remotely. Last week’s alerts underscored the fact that organizations are trying to keep their employees safe from online threats as they connect to the internal network with personal devices and increasingly rely on cloud applications to keep working. The most recent alert, issued jointly by the United Kingdom’s National Cyber Security Centre, warned of a password spraying campaign “actively targeting organizations involved in both national and international COVID-19 responses.”
