Hi guys - Happy New Year - and what better time than to review your security standards!!


Anyway - I love sharing this stuff, so here's more.... 


There is a current malware email campaign claiming to be from law firm 'Baker & McKenzie' that states you are scheduled to appear in court and should click a link to view a copy of the court notice. I suggest you send the following warning to all your users. Feel free to edit.

"Internet scammers are sending emails claiming to come from a real law firm called 'Baker & McKenzie'. The email states you are scheduled to appear in court and should click a link to view a copy of the court 
notice. The email is not from Baker & McKenzie and has no connection to the firm. It is an attempt by cyber criminals to trick you into trying to prevent a negative consequence. If you click on the link, you download and install malware. 

In the recent past there have been a series of these "court appearance" malware attacks that claim to be from law firms or government entities. If you get one of these scams, do not click any links or open any 
attachments, delete these emails. Remember: If in doubt, throw it out!"

If you are a KnowBe4 customer, this would be the time to send out the new template we created for this called "Notice To Appear In Court" in the Government category. This is how it looks, modeled exactly after the phishing attack that is happening at the moment. 


Warm regards,
