FBI Advisory on Possible September 11 Threat to Financial Institution Websites

The FBI Cyber Division has issued a Private Sector Advisory regarding a possible cyber-related threat to United States-based and foreign financial institutions on or about September 11, 2013.  Although previous iterations of this effort have had limited if any impact to the targeted entities, the FBI encourages the private sector to take reasonable steps to secure cyber infrastructure in light of possible threats.

The FBI encourages recipients to report information concerning suspicious activity to the local field office Cyber Task Force, http://www.fbi.gov/contact/fo/fo.htm, or contact the FBI's 24/7 Cyber Watch Center at 855-292-3937.  When available, each report should include the date, time, location, type of activity, number of people, type of equipment used for this activity, the name of the submitting company or organization, and a designated point of contact.
