As organizations around the world prepare for a potential increase in cyberattacks linked to the situation in Ukraine, we want to share important reminders on how PTS helps you stay vigilant. Your entire team plays a critical role to keep your business, your customers, and your patients cyber safe.


Phishing attacks

Phishing emails are typically linked to current events and create a heightened sense of urgency for the recipient to respond immediately to the request. Currently, phishing emails related to COVID-19, donating to the situation in Ukraine and tax season are very common.


What can you do?

Your continued awareness and actions are a crucial part of preventing cybersecurity attacks. When it comes to keeping your cyber skills sharp, keep these tips top of mind:

  1. Promptly report suspicious emails
  2. Use strong passwords
  3. Think before you click
  4. Be careful with emails and mobile text messages
  5. Beware of unexpected Multi-Factor Authentication requests


What else can you do?

Solutions like:
