Information Security TIP OF THE WEEK – Impersonators of Government Agencies

|

This week’s tip is a reminder to be very cautious of ANYONE asking for sensitive information. This time of year, there are always scams “appearing” to be from the IRS threatening you about back taxes. There are always FBI or law enforcement scams threatening jail. The newest is impersonators of HHS wanting health data of patients from providers. Always verify who is asking for information.
