CV-19 Cyber Awareness
We are really proud to be supporting CV-19, the volunteer group set up following the outbreak of COVID19. This group has been put together to provide cyber security support to the NHS and healthcare institutions across Europe on a voluntary basis.
Our Co-founder Dr Jessica Barker and the Cygenta Team are leading the awareness project, designing and producing campaigns aimed at healthcare frontline and back office staff. All resources below are freely available for everyone to download and use.
Physical Security Campaign
While hospitals are busy looking after our health, criminals have been busy exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic. With reports of physical security attacks on hospitals, including theft of PPE, we have designed and delivered our latest campaign for the CV19 Cyber Volunteers group. Please access and share these resources to help healthcare workers remain aware of what they need to protect, why it’s so important and how to take action.
Phishing Awareness Campaign
Cyber criminals are exploiting COVID-19 in social engineering attacks, with many phishing attacks taking advantage of people’s anxieties, concerns, desire to help and of the special offers and support that corporations are extending to healthcare workers. This campaign raises awareness of these scams and the way they target our emotional responses. The aim of this campaign is to encourage people to be vigilant of communications and to take a minute to check it’s right.
