Cyber Security: Supply Chain Scam Tips

The ongoing war in Ukraine and the lockdown due to COVID-19 outbreaks in China have drastically impacted supply chains for industries around the world. 
Another wave of supply chain-related phishing and social engineering attacks is expected.

Fake advertisements for hard-to-find products, spoofing of shipping delay notifications and misleading articles about well-known organisations are some of the methods used by cybercriminals.
A few tips to help you spot supply chain scams: 

1. Never click on a link or download an attachment in an email that you were not expecting.

2. Watch out for sensational or shocking headlines about the world’s supply chains. These headlines could lead to articles that contain disinformation, or false information that is intentionally designed to mislead you.

3. If you are expecting a shipment and receive a related email, confirm that the message is legitimate before clicking on any links in the email. Look for details such as the order number, the purchase date and the payment method used for the
