Practical Cybersecurity Advice Following the Equifax Breach

UCAR/NCAR/UCP was not directly affected by the Equifax Breach, but employees may be wondering what to do next. SANS Director of Security Awareness, Lance Spitzer, posted an excellent page on his blog with advice listing out four steps you can take, including 
  • Purchasing or enrolling in Credit Monitoring
  • Establishing a Security (Credit) Freeze
  • Monitoring Financial Accounts
  • Being extra aware of Social Engineering Attacks (phishing) in the coming weeks/months   
If you have follow up questions on cybersecurity awareness, please feel free to contact the Cybersecurity Program Office cpo@ucar.edu.
