CISA, NSA, FBI, and MS-ISAC Release Phishing Prevention Guidance



the Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency (CISA), the National Security Agency (NSA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) released a joint guide, Phishing Guidance: Stopping the Attack Cycle at Phase One.
 
The joint guide outlines phishing techniques malicious actors commonly use and provides guidance for both network defenders and software manufacturers to reduce the impact of phishing techniques used in obtaining credentials and deploying malware.
 
CISA and its partners encourage network defenders and software manufacturers to implement the recommendations in the guide to reduce the frequency and impact of phishing incidents. For more information, see CISA’s Malware, Phishing, and Ransomware and Security-by-Design and -Default webpages.
 
High on the list of mitigations, they recommend user training
 
"Implement user training on social engineering and phishing attacks [CPG 2.I]. Regularly educate users on identifying suspicious emails and links, not interacting with those suspicious items, and the importance of reporting instances of opening suspicious emails, links, attachments, or other potential lures. "
