Cotton GDS: Prepare for Winter Storms

We’re shifting gears from tropical storms to winter hazards and we’d like to help you prepare. Extreme winter weather can have a negative impact on utilities and other services, sometimes leaving communities without power for hours. Should this happen in your area, will you be ready?

The Department of Homeland Security breaks winter preparation into three categories: Prepare Now, Survive During, and Recognize and Respond.

Preparing now means checking on colleagues, family and neighbors to make sure they have everything they need, such as medications, generators, and food to last them a few days. It also means checking carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms to ensure they’re working properly and leaving the faucets on to avoid frozen pipes. Encourage employees to create an emergency kit to keep in their cars since storms can happen quickly and unexpectedly.

If a winter...

The more precautions you take, the better chance you have at protecting your information and the information of those you interact with. We’ve outlined the different types of cyberthreats to help you quickly identify them and avoid falling for their traps.

Social Engineering is the process of deceiving and manipulating people into performing actions or giving away confidential information that may be used for fraudulent purposes. The most common form of social engineering is phishing. Phishing attacks usually come in the form of a fraudulent email that asks users to click a link and enter their personal information. The email will look like it’s coming from a trusted source but will usually contain typos or unusual URLs.

APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats) are those in which an unauthorized user infiltrates a network undetected and stays in the network for a long period of time. The purpose of these threats is not to damage the network but to steal information...
