Email Scams – Don’t Be a Victim

Email Scam

The two most common online security vulnerabilities within youth sports organizations concern registration systems and email accounts. In both cases, the password used to access these areas is of utmost importance.

Earlier this week in Rockton, IL, members of a youth track & field organization received a scam email from an organization account. The email account’s password was compromised and an unauthorized user accessed the account.

To be as safe as possible, please see our previous blog post – Top 5 Password Security Tips. One key example is to have unique passwords – administrators should never share accounts and should never have the same password as one another.

While reviewing these password tips, also be sure you know how your registration data is being (potentially) used by your provider. For example, Demosphere does not use or sell any customer registration data – our mission is to store things securely on behalf of our customers. If your organization uses a different system, double check the privacy policy to make sure information isn’t being distributed to third parties.
