New Guidance from Leading Agencies: Combat Phishing Attacks Effectively

Posted by BAS - 09 November, 2023


In a collaborative effort, the Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency (CISA), the National Security Agency (NSA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) have unveiled a comprehensive guide to thwarting phishing attacks. The guide, titled "Phishing Guidance: Stopping the Attack Cycle at Phase One," not only exposes common phishing techniques but also offers actionable advice to enhance defenses and reduce the consequences of these cyber threats.

For HR professionals and network defenders, this guide serves as a vital resource for bolstering your cybersecurity posture. By following the recommendations outlined in this joint release, you can significantly lower the risk of phishing incidents and the subsequent deployment of malware.

As these government agencies urge network defenders and software manufacturers to leverage this guide's insights, your organization can become better equipped to fend off phishing attacks. With a focus on minimizing both the frequency and impact of these threats, you can enhance your overall security posture.
