1 min read

October is a cybersecurity month, but hackers and scammers are working hard every day. Cyber threats come through websites, emails, texts, and phone calls. The risks are financial loss, reputation damage and loss of intellectual property. We need to make every day a security day by being alert and by following security best practices, including:

  • Change your passwords often
  • Don’t reuse the same passwords
  • Be suspicious of any monetary requests
  • Look out for fraudsters impersonating IEEE leaders
  • Don’t fall for threats nor requests for immediate action
  • Always use a secondary method and contact information to verify a sender’s identity

Contact IEEE IT security team at security@ieee.org to report any suspicious activities or if you have questions or need help.
