Social Media

Take Control
Of Your
Online Presence!

Cyber threat actors sometimes known as “Access Brokers” are attracted to social media accounts of prominent athletes and teams. They develop sophisticated and targeted phishing campaigns for luring their victims into a trust relationship.  They then deliver a weaponized item that takes control of the victim’s device.   

By joining with other users in the sports industry members of the Sports-ISAO take collective action against the misuse of social media accounts for nefarious actions by social engineers and initial access brokers.
