The city of Burlington Ontario falls for $500,000 phishing scam; investigations underway.
A sophisticated phishing email requesting new bank account information was purportedly sent from an established city vendor. Workers didn’t immediately identify the scam, and the city sent $503,000 to a falsified bank account. Although the government is updating its protocols to prevent this from happening in the future, it’s a reminder that, when it comes to guarding resources, proper cybersecurity training is a bargain.
