Hiring Interns this Summer? You Need to Read This…


As the Summer intern season begins, we want to remind our clients that criminals will be targeting your interns as soon as they start.

Any type of company or LinkedIn post as well as the personal social media posts by your new interns will almost certainly invite cybercriminal attention. Your best defense is to ensure all your interns are educated DAY 1 on the types of phishing and spear-phishing attacks that will be coming their way. Most notably, make them aware that any type of executive request – especially for gift cards – should be a red flag. Also, make sure they know that they must NEVER provide any company login credentials in response to an e-mail request – no matter how legitimate the request may appear. Ultimately, they should be trained that “When in doubt to any type of e-mail – always pick up the phone and call your manager!”
