Adjusting how we work during the Pandemic has been the challenge of 2020. As we changed from in-person meetings to remote video conference calls, cybercriminals have also learned to pivot. Cybercriminals are spoofing video conferencing software like Zoom and Microsoft Teams. They are getting very clever with their phishing emails.
Here are some examples of their popular ones:
1. An email claiming you need to reschedule a missed meeting.
2. An email saying that you need to set up a new account.
3. An email claiming your account has been suspended and you can’t join a meeting without clicking on the link.
Tips to remember:
- If you are asked to log in, go to the website in your browser and log in. Do not click on the link within the email.
- Don’t click on a link from an email that you weren’t expecting.
- Look at the sender’s email address for misspellings. A lot of the time, a phishing email will have words spelled incorrectly that we quickly glance over.
- Remember to always think before clicking.
