The Center for Internet Security (CIS) has released its 2018 Year in Review. CIS is home to the Multi-State Information Sharing & Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), a Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) partner focused on cyber threat prevention, protection, response, and recovery for U.S. state, local, tribal, and territorial government entities. The review highlights the creation of the Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing & Analysis Center (EI-ISAC), the collaborative production of “A Handbook for Elections Infrastructure Security,” and MS-ISAC's advances.
The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has released an alert on Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) phishing—a scheme which lures email recipients into visiting malicious websites that look legitimate and secure.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages users and administrators to review the IC3 Alert and the CISA Tip on Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks. If you believe you are a victim of cybercrime, file a complaint with IC3 at www.ic3.gov.
