Phishing scams appear to originate from a trusted source to trick a user into providing information. The attacker can then use this information to access your accounts, gather additional private information about you, and make purchases or apply for credit in your name.
Tip of the Week:
Sensitive Data Can Become Vulnerable When Accessed Through Public Computers. Never Access Workplace Information In These Locations.
Whether you are in a café or a hotel's business center, the computers you use may not be secured properly. The computers in these public centers may be infected with malicious software or could otherwise have serious security vulnerabilities. You may even accidentally leave confidential or sensitive information on the computer after you're done. Only use your own computer when you need to work away from the office.
