Cirrus Research plc Cyber Security
You may have seen recently in the media stories regarding the use of email addresses that have been obtained fraudulently and that are being used in large-scale phishing activities.
Criminals have always distributed fraudulent emails in large quantities in the hope that they can get more information, either through infecting PCs with malware or by getting a reply or unsubscribe request, that they can then sell on or use for other criminal activities.
These messages can often try to impersonate a number of brands, including Cirrus Research plc, and are designed to trick you into opening attachments which will infect your PC with Malware.
At Cirrus, we have seen an increase in the volume of spam or junk emails being sent to us across all of our businesses and locations and we have recently updated our cyber security systems and policies to manage this.
Please be reminded that Cirrus will only send invoices and other documents as pdf attachments, and never as an embedded link.
Please be very wary of all emails that seem suspicious. If you receive an email purporting to be from Cirrus, which seems unusual in any way, please do not click on any link, and contact us via phone if you are unsure of its authenticity.
