APWG Provides Awareness and Alerting Utilities to Industry and Consumers for Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022

Detection and/or mitigation of Cybercrime

APWG’s Counter-cybercrime R&D Forge Proffers Programs for Education, Awareness and Alerting Every Day of the Year 

<a class="use-lightbox floated-featured-image img-responsive pull-right tl-html" style="color: var(–brand-color-link);text-decoration: none;float: right;font-family: Montserrat, sans-serif" title="" href="https://cdn.newswire.com/files/x/d0/55/b775e2cbc0420219b1ec421b0f08.jpg" rel="noopener" data-alt="SEE CYBERCRIME | REPORT CYBERCRIME – An APWG Global Reporting Program" data-caption="SEE CYBERCRIME | REPORT CYBERCRIME – An APWG Global Reporting Program" data-original-title="SEE CYBERCRIME | REPORT CYBERCRIME – An APWG Global Reporting Program


SEE CYBERCRIME | REPORT CYBERCRIME – An APWG Global Reporting Program”>

In support of Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022, APWG is reminding all counter-cybercrime communities of the awareness, education and cybercrime-reporting utilities that the global association maintains for industry and consumers worldwide.

This year’s CSAM campaign theme — See Yourself in Cyber — speaks directly to APWG cybercrime suppression objectives, including the CSAM imperative for 2022 to recognize and report phishing — a cybersecurity standard operating procedure (SOP) that APWG enabled programmatically in 2004 with its phishing mail reporting service — the same year CSAM was established by presidential declaration.

The APWG’s three awareness and education programs for industry and consumers support that the activist motivations of the CSAM 2022 campaign are: 

Pull the Alarm: Report Phishing to reportphishing@apwg.org and Be the First to Point to the Bad Guys

The APWG Report Phishing forward program has routed billions of phishing email lures to industrial processes and analysts since it was formally established in 2004, a mechanism used by the general public, commercial enterprises, national governments and multilateral treaty organizations worldwide. Currently, the Report Phishing forward service processes a half million reports per month.

If you have received a suspicious or obviously malicious phishing email, you can forward those to APWG for analysis and processing by APWG member companies and institutions.

The best way to do this is to simply forward the suspected phishing email to reportphishing@apwg.org. Forwarding suspected phishing emails to APWG contributes directly to fraud and crime prevention services to protect users and track criminal activity. 

If your email client supports the option to “Forward As Attachment,” please use it as this will provide APWG’s systems with more detail for our member institutions to trace and monitor phishing websites.

All data is handled responsibly and under contract with the APWG-vetted member community. 

APWG Proffers Awareness Jujitsu for Web Hosting Industry: Replace Phishing Pages With Educational Messaging

In 2009, APWG and the Carnegie Mellon CyLab Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory (CUPS) established a redirect utility for ISPs that forwards users clicking on links to decommissioned phishing web pages to a special page of educational tips and advice.

The Phishing Education Landing Page replaces phishing pages with a redirect script that sends users to educational instruction when they click on phishing URLs — instead of a confusing and largely blank Error 404 message.

As part of the process for shutting down a phishing website, APWG requests that ISPs, registrars, and parties with control of a phishing page to redirect visitors to phishing websites to the Phishing Education Landing Page at http://education.apwg.org/r

The APWG CMU Phishing Education Landing Page has been in continuous operation since 2009, reminding millions of credulous consumers to take care in their web-borne travels. The educational messaging is presented in one of 21 languages, calibrated to the language settings of users’ browsers.

The STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign Provides Tested Messaging for Reminding Users of Best Cyber Practices

The STOP. THINK. CONNECT. program is a cybersecurity public awareness campaign of shared assets promoted by industry, NGOs and national government deployments — and through cooperative relationships with multilateral treaty organizations. Currently, the campaign is deployed in dozens of countries

STOP. THINK. CONNECT. was conceived and initially proposed as a Messaging Convention by the APWG to its members in 2008 as a way to optimize user awareness and education by unifying the cybersecurity awareness messaging they receive and reducing the clutter of uncoordinated, inconsonant efforts. 

The campaign has been deployed by cabinet ministries, national CERTs, government agencies and NGOs in some 25 nations —  the first in the United States in 2010. Most recently, the Messaging Convention has completed cooperative agreements with ministries in South America and Central Asia. See: https://messagingconvention.org/national-curators

The STOP. THINK. CONNECT. slogan and badge and advisory suite is a complete package for a national, regional or localized cybersecurity awareness campaign and is offered at no cost and with no restriction on educational uses of the assets.

SYMPOSIUM ON ELECTRONIC CRIME RESEARCH


December 2

Join Us For eCrime 2022

The Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (APWG eCrime) examines the economic foundations, behavioral elements, and other keystone aspects that animate and fuel the burgeoning global, multi-billion-dollar cybercrime plexus at its 17th annual symposium on Nov 30-Dec 2.

The symposium is scheduled as a virtual event this year, held online only, as CV19 infection rates reported at public events and lack of clarity on the immune evasion and heightened transmissibility of recent Omicron subvariants suggest caution is required at this time.

The selected peer-reviewed papers will be included in the conference’s presentations along with numerous panels and talks from other correspondent researchers selected from industrial and academic research centers affiliated with the APWG.

Students requiring discounts should contact symposium managers at apwg_events@apwg.com

The symposium’s proceedings are in English.

Please contact the APWG eCrime program team for details via email at apwg_events@apwg.org.

APWG Members can register for no charge using a coupon code during the registration process. The coupon code will be distributed via the members discussion list.

About the Symposium on Electronic Crime Research 

The Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (APWG eCrime) was founded in 2006 as the eCrime Researchers Summit, conceived as a comprehensive venue to present basic and applied research into electronic crime and engaging every aspect of its evolution – as well as spotlighting technologies and techniques for cybercrime detection, response, forensics and prevention.

Since then, what had been initially a technology focused conference has incrementally expanded its focus to cover behavioral, social, economic, and legal / policy dimensions as well as technical aspects of cybercrime, following the interests of our correspondent investigators, the symposium’s managers as well as the APWG’s own directors and steering committee members.

Scores upon scores of papers exploring these dimensions of cybercrime at APWG eCrime have been published by the IEEE <APWG | eCrime Research Papers> as well as by Taylor & Francis and the Association of Computing Machinery (in the very earliest years of the symposium).

With its multi-disciplinary approach, APWG eCrime every year brings together the most heterogeneous community of counter-eCrime researchers and industrial stakeholders to confer over the latest research, and to foster collaborations between the leading investigators in this still nascent field of cybercrime studies.

A Short History of APWG eCrime

Academic and industrial researchers appeared at the APWG’s door almost at the very genesis of the APWG, delineating phishing’s contemporary nature, speculating on probable evolutionary trajectories – and proposing research that needed APWG’s data corpora to shape their theses and inform their research. The APWG established APWG eCrime to honor that contribution, foster its spirit – and to organize the creative energy of researchers that would eventually overwhelm the APWG’s other conference venues.

APWG organized the initial eCrime Researchers Summit in Orlando in early Spring 2006 in collaboration with Florida State University; the National Center for Forensic Sciences at University of Central Florida; and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, recognizing the interest in ecrime research by both researchers and within the law enforcement community. Secretary General Cassidy authored the initial CFP. FSU computer science researcher Judi Mulholland organized and managed the peer-review committee and edited the proceedings for publication by Taylor & Francis.

Since the first eCrime conference in 2006, the APWG eCrime management team and submission review committee – drawing from academic and industrial researchers from across the world – has produced conference with academic conference partners every year. Today, APWG eCrime is supported by the IEEE Standards Association which acts as Technical Sponsor to the conference and publishes the conferences proceedings in the IEEE XPlore Digital Library.

APWG eCrime will continue to be a collaborative project of its sponsoring institutions, its chairs, committee members, reviewers, and, of course, the researchers who share their findings. The APWG gives its thanks to all who are making eCrime the keystone event in the field and to all of those who have helped establish and maintain it.
