You or an employee at your business receives an email or message from someone disguised as a trusted person or company asking you to click a link, open an attachment, or share your organization’s sensitive information. If you follow the instructions, scammers can install malicious software onto your computer, gain access to your data, or spread malicious software to your entire network.
If you think your business has been impacted by a phishing scam, we recommend that you act immediately by following our guidelines below, and then proceed to our Report, Recover, and Reinforce sections for further assistance.
These resources have been gathered, selected and vetted to help simplify the process of recovering after a cybercrime incident has taken place. You may need to contact organizations outside Fraudsupport.org. Results will vary depending on your circumstances.
Once you have notified the appropriate organizations and you are on the road to recovery, it is time to reinforce your cybersecurity using these resources and tools.
