The scale and intensity of cyber-attacks and fraudulent financial transactions are growing fast in the current COVID-19 crisis.
The Global Fund is making available an online Phishing Training course to be taken by all PR, SR and CCM staff involved in financial transactions by 30 October 2020.
The letter being shared with CCMs, PRs and SRs (download in English | Español | Français | Português) includes information on who’s expected to take the training and explains how Local Fund Agents will verify the implementation of the training during the next PUDR review.
The Global Fund has been taking measures to secure IT systems at its Secretariat based in Geneva and has extended warnings to Country Coordinating Mechanisms and Principal Recipients to raise awareness of this issue accordingly.
