Spotting malicious e-mail messages: D97-1/100-2017E-PDF

"Government of Canada (GC) departments and their networks are frequently targeted by a wide variety of threat actors looking to steal GC information. Cyber intruders are technologically savvy, vulnerability conscious, and aggressively agile; a successful intrusion can quickly lead to the loss of data integrity and confidentiality. GC employees are privy to important and sensitive information, and as a result, often receive malicious e-mails that are intended to provide cyber intruders access to this information. Everyone needs to be aware of the threats and take care to ensure that GC information is protected and secure"--P. [1].
