ETSU investigating ‘phishing’ attack, providing $22,000 in credit monitoring for victims

I was honored to have the opportunity to make a small contribution to this news report.  Thank you to John Engel and News 5 WCYB for their diligence.

Spear phishing is a serious threat to many organizations and can result in the loss of highly sensitive information.  ETSU has taken respectable steps after the fact to mitigate the impact of this incident, but we can all learn from this situation and strengthen the postures of our own organizations to prevent these types of attacks in the future.
