Multiple new agencies have been reporting about criminals targeting people online for large payouts. A woman was scammed out of nearly $86,000 by someone she met on Match.com (story here). And it was reported today that organized crime groups have been approaching businesses as legitimate business partners and scamming companies out of thoughts, sometimes even millions, of dollars (story here).
Online safety has become more and more important as we conduct more of our personal and professional lives on the internet. Special Agent Jess Cugno of the FBI will be joining us in June to discuss the Campus Online Safety Tips (C.O.S.T.) initiative. This working group focuses specifically on academia, but could provide useful information for those in other fields as well.
