Wipro, one of the world’s largest outsourcing companies, has confirmed that it was the subject of a cyberattack and that its attackers used – and may be continuing to use – access to Wipro’s systems to launch phishing campaigns against the company’s customers.
The investigation is ongoing, but if you or your clients use Wipro, please be wary of any communications that appear to come from the company. Training for personnel is the first line of defense. If an email, text or other inquiry seems odd or an attachment was unexpected, pick up the phone to verify the source or request before responding or clicking on a link.
Be alert and be secure.
