“As scammers become more sophisticated and their schemes harder to detect, there are some legal remedies for targeted organizations.”

Online scammers continue to evolve as organizations, and their teams continue to work from home. While training and other informational resources have raised awareness of simple phishing scams (stay alert; they’re still a threat), experts warn that scammers are evolving and becoming more sophisticated.

This article by Philip Nulud for SECURITYINFOWATCH.com provides insight and advice on these legal options.
