How the Democratic National Committee was hacked and to prevent it from happening to you!

New indictments against twelve Russian hackers give us a detailed account of just how they infiltrated the Democratic National Committee’s network. It started with a single spear phishing email; a personalized, targeted hacking attempt sent to an employee at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Once inside the DCCC network they were also able to gain access to the DNC using malware on employee’s computers.

In 2016 the Russian hackers stole thousands of emails and sensitive documents — all because of one phishing email. It’s not just political organizations that are at risk: you’ll likely be targeted as well. And it’s getting harder and harder to spot a fake email or text message. Find out how to prevent hackers from getting to you, too.
