The national intelligence office launched the government-wide awareness campaign to prevent future data breaches in federal information technology systems.

“In 91% of the breaches we’ve seen in the government and private sector over the last several years, the attacks emanated from spear phishing,” Bill Evanina, ODNI’s national counterintelligence executive, said at the Intelligence & National Security Summit in Washington. “Our adversaries do not need to use sophisticated attacks, it all starts with emails.”
