A Voicemail From Who?
In this video, we discuss a scam that social engineers are using to gain access to sensitive personal information. Fraudsters will call phone numbers and leave recorded voicemails saying that the IRS is after you, and if you do not respond, there is precedent for legal action.
Social engineering is a major problem in the security industry, because from Braintree, MA to California, people continue to fall for this. Social engineering testing can help keep organizations secure along with a vulnerability assessment, IT general controls review, and penetration test.
Here are some things you can do right away:
- Do not call inbound numbers back and provide them with sensitive data.
- Understand that tax season is a common time of year scams.
