TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — As National Cybersecurity Month ends, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody is urging people to stay vigilant when it comes to protecting their personal information.

Moody says people are relying on technology even more as the pandemic continues, and she says this shift has brought on new cyber threats.

"From Zoom bombers hacking video conferences, to imposter websites infected with malware, even fraudsters using this pandemic and technology to scam Floridians," said Moody.
