Protect Yourself and IEEE

October is a cybersecurity month, but hackers and scammers are working hard every day. Cyber threats come through websites, emails, texts, and phone calls. The risks are financial loss, reputation damage and loss of intellectual property. We need to make every day a security day by being alert and by following security best practices, including:

Change your passwords oftenDon’t reuse the same passwordsBe suspicious of any monetary requestsLook out for fraudsters impersonating IEEE leadersDon’t fall for threats nor requests for immediate actionAlways use a secondary method and contact information to verify a sender’s identity

Contact IEEE IT security team at to report any suspicious activities or if you have questions or need help.
