The text "Cybersecurity Tip of the Week"

Black Friday and Cyber Monday kick off holiday shopping and also bring out the scammers. Fraudsters follow shopping trends and lure victims who are trying to buy popular items at a significant savings. Don’t fall victim to cyber scams.

Action Steps: 1. Pause before clicking on any links or giving out your credit card, banking or other personal information over the phone or online.

2. Verify that you are dealing with a legitimate site and not being misdirected to an imposter site. Make sure your seller is legitimate or you may be a scam victim.See our CTR Cyber page for more cybersecurity internal controls and contact [email protected] with any incidents or suspected incidents of fraud or cyber threats or if you need support from our Statewide Risk Management Team.
