and Security Center
Know your risk, raise your shield.
In a recent warning the National Counterintelligence and Security Center’s (NCSC) website put out a warning to all businesses:
“Foreign intelligence entities, which may include foreign governments, corporations, and their proxies, are actively targeting information, assets, and technologies that are vital to both U.S. national security and our global competitiveness. Increasingly, U.S. companies are in the cross-hairs of these foreign intelligence entities, which are breaching private computer networks, pilfering American business secrets and innovation, and carrying out other illicit activities. The National Counterintelligence and Security Center is dedicated to raising awareness among government employees and private industry about these foreign intelligence threats, the risks they pose, and the defensive measures necessary for individuals and organizations to safeguard that which has been entrusted to their protection.”
The NCSC website YouTube videos and tools address the following topics:
1. Social Media Deception
2. Social Engineering
3. Spear phishing
4. Travel Awareness
5. Human Targeting
6. Supply Chain Risk Management
7. Economic Espionage
Because of the confidential information they possess, Law Firms and Accounting Firms continue to be targets.
