Tax time

Consolidated Cybersecurity Update at Tax Time

Tax time, it’s one of many cybercriminals' favorite seasons. Taxes are a sensitive topic that can easily be used to catch your attention or manipulate your emotions. Over the next few months, cybercriminals will likely mention taxes in phishing attacks and disinformation campaigns.

Tax season is also a vulnerable time for your sensitive information. Tax documents from employers, banks, and other organizations typically include personally identifiable information. If cybercriminals get their hands on this information, they can use it to steal your identity, your money, and more.

Tips to help keep your information safe during tax season:

  1. Always think before you click. Cyberattacks are designed to catch you off guard and trick you into clicking impulsively.
  2. Use extra caution when handling tax documents. For digital documents, use password protection. For physical documents, keep paperwork in a secure location and shred anything that is no longer needed.
  3. Be suspicious of emails, text messages, and social media posts that contain shocking information about taxes. These messages are likely disinformation designed to mislead you.
