It has come to our attention that a Creative Saskatchewan staff email was recently spoofed in a cyberattack against a client.
In a spoofing attack, the cybercriminal can make messages appear to be from a legitimate email address with the purpose of obtaining information for criminal activity.
Even if the source of the email looks like it is from Creative Saskatchewan, please note that any information or questions surrounding banking, grant documents, passwords, asking for money, gift cards, invoices, details to a personal record etc. (especially if there’s a sense of urgency) should be followed up with a phone call to double check that they are legitimate.
Please be advised that this is an isolated attack and the necessary authorities and institutions have been alerted. Creative Saskatchewan is participating in a formal investigation with the police.
