New York State's Cyber Security Alert Indicator

Today's Cyber Security Level is: Guarded

On March 23, 2017, the Cyber Alert Level is remaining at Blue (Guarded) due to a general risk of increased hacking, virus or other malicious activity. Organizations and users are advised to review the details outlined in recent advisories, update and apply all appropriate vendor security patches to vulnerable systems after appropriate testing, and update their antivirus signatures daily. Another line of defense includes user awareness of the threats posed by attachments and hypertext links contained in emails especially from un-trusted sources.
