Spoof emails30th June 2022
The Commission has become aware of a possible phishing attempt being sent to some of its licensees purporting to be from the Commission. If you have received an email from the Commission and you are unsure of its authenticity, please do not click on any links or attachments and instead forward it to [email protected]. The Commission sends its emails from the domain ending “gfsc.gg” and the email domain that the spoof email purports to come from is “gg-gfsc.com”
Firms are reminded of the guidance available to them in the Commission’s Cyber Rules and Guidance, 2021 and in particular the need to ensure firms:
- and their staff exercise caution and vigilance by not clicking on or opening unfamiliar links in emails;
- have appropriate cyber security software in place;
- implement IT systems updates in a timely manner;
- notify the Commission if they are subject to a significant cyber security event.
