"Go Phish" -  Low or No-Cost Cybersecurity Tips for Small 
and Medium Businesses

Associate,  Archer & Greiner, P.C.
You, or someone you know, have invariably received a phishing email or text message. For some, a phishing email is a simple request for assistance by someone purporting to be your colleague or employee. It is often sent at an odd hour (think 5:30 A.M. or 8:30 P.M.) and begins a vague request for assistance, such as:

"Hey, I am stuck in a meeting but I need your assistance. Are you in the office right now and able to assist". 

For others, phishing emails come from a person pretending to be Dropbox or another recognized service and requesting that you download some resource or document. The goal of all these emails is the same-to get you to do something that benefits the fraudsters on the other end, such as sending them money [sometimes by installing ransomware on your computer] or giving up your Social Security number, account numbers or login credentials. 

The Federal Trade Commission provides resources to help businesses address cybersecurity, including the risks posed by phishing. Check out the FTC website here

Specific advice concerning phishing attacks can be found here and here. They include calling the sender or a colleague to verify the bona fides of the request, keeping computer security software updated and implementing email authentication technology .

In addition, Rob Kleeger, the Founder & Managing Director of Digital4nx Group, Ltd., a New Jersey -- operated digital forensic investigation and national cyber security consulting and advisory boutique, recommends that businesses take several reasonable and cost effective steps to begin to protect themselves from phishing emails and other cyber threats.
  1. Pay attention to the sender's email address. Cyber criminals often mimic a legitimate business email address with only a character or two altered or omitted.
  2. Hover over hyperlinks. Hover the cursor over any links in an email-those not matching the text that appears when hovering over them raise a red flag. Additionally, the use of a URL shortening service to hide the true destination of the link also raises a red flag.
  3. Use complex and unique passwords. Use unique passwords for each account you own, with long character counts and a mix of upper and lower case letters and special characters. Using a password manager like LastPass, KeePass, Dashlane, and others is a good idea.
  4. Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). While two-factor authentication (2FA) isn't bullet-proof, it is an important line of defense against attackers who are trying to access your accounts after your credentials have already been compromised.
  5. Cyber Awareness Training. Proper training which makes cybersecurity "personal" establishes a "human firewall" and is the best method for personnel to embrace a cyber culture.
Digital4nx provides more cyber security tips here.

The FTC also recommends reporting the phishing attempts to the FTC's emailbox, , and to . For businesses in New Jersey, the ever present and growing concerns about phishing emails and all types of cyberattacks, including their legal consequences, are reflected in the NJ Attorney General's recent uptick in enforcement actions related to preventable data breaches discussed in our previous post.  No matter where you are or where the people whose information you have are located, the FTC's most recent guidance provides a low-cost starting point for businesses of all sizes in this state and beyond.

Back to basics: "Plan your work, and work your plan!"
  1. Talk with your Ambassador to help you choose the best events to meet prospective clients for your company.
  2. The day before the event, check the list of those registered to attend, and pick the top 4 or 5 you want to meet. Send that list to your Ambassador.
  3. Arrive 5 minutes before registration time. That first half hour is when you will make most connections, then sit at a table with people you haven't met.
  4. Always ask how you can help them first. What is a good lead for them? Most of them will then ask you the same. Have your 30 second "Elevator Pitch" ready.
  5. Exchange cards and follow up within 24 hours after the Chamber event.
Remember...It's all about "relationships". Best place to start them is at CCSNJ.
