Posted on FlashAlert: May 16th, 2017 1:25 PM
The FBI's Portland Division is launching a new Public Service Announcement (PSA) campaign titled "Tech Tuesday: Building a Digital Defense" for home and work. Each week over the next few months, the FBI in Oregon will release information about the computer threats that we all face along with helpful hints as to how a person or a business can best defend against hackers, thieves and cyber criminals.

"The scope of the problem is so great that no law enforcement agency can stop each and every threat that hits our collective digital doorstep," says Loren Cannon, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Oregon. "Our goal is to help educate both the general consumer and Oregon businesses about simple, practical steps they can take to keep their data safe."

The FBI will offer both written tips and audio clips to encourage media and the general public to take the information and pass it along. The FBI also plans to offer the information in Spanish and Russian as those two communities in Oregon are often targets for victimization by fraudsters.
