“The US Department of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin pertaining to the changing threat landscape following the U.S.-led airstrike in Iran.”  This bulletin specifically addresses Cyber Security and this note is a reminder that we all have a part to be diligent when it comes to Cyber Security.

  • Previous homeland-based plots have included, among other things, scouting and planning against infrastructure targets and cyber enabled attacks against a range of U.S.-based targets.
  • Iran maintains a robust cyber program and can execute cyber attacks against the United States. Iran is capable, at a minimum, of carrying out attacks with temporary disruptive effects against critical infrastructure in the United States.

Recommendations include:

  • Be careful of suspicious emails and phone calls.
    • Call people back on numbers you know
    • Do not click on links or attachments on suspicious emails
  • Know where you data is stored and that is being backed up
  • Stay diligent and ask for IT Support if you have any questions.
