Cybercrime Support Network and CISA Announce New Victim Resource Catalog
A Searchable Catalog of Resources for Individuals and Small Businesses Impacted by a Cyber Incident

Nov. 12, 2020 (ANN ARBOR, MICH)Cybercrime Support Network (CSN) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) are proud to announce the launch of a Victim Resource Catalog (VRC) on FraudSupport.org. This searchable, online catalog of resources is available for individuals and small businesses impacted by a cyber incident to assist in response, reporting, and security reinforcement after a cyber incident occurs. State, local, tribal and territorial (SLTT) agencies can also use the resource to refer residents in need of help. 

“FraudSupport.org has supported over 650,000 visitors since its launch on Nov. 14, 2018,” said Kristin Judge, CEO and founder of CSN. “The new Victim Resource Catalog will make it even easier for those impacted by a cyber incident to find the resources they need to recover. We are so thankful for our partnership with CISA and the opportunity to launch this new feature on FraudSupport.org’s 2nd anniversary.”

Using the Victim Resource Catalog, FraudSupport.org visitors are able to type in keywords to search the catalog and filter their results by threat type and audience type. Threat type filters include identity theft, financial/purchase scams, hacked account/device, and more. Audience type filters include older adults and caregivers; children, teens, and young adults; military personnel and their families; and small and medium businesses.

The Victim Resource Catalog was funded by a cooperative agreement between CSN and CISA through a State, Local, Tribal and Territorial (SLTT) Reporting and Threat Information Sharing Pilot Project. CSN and CISA are also working with partners to create and test a standardized reporting structure to capture more cyber threat information and actively share that data with SLTT and Federal agencies with authority to act on the complaint. In addition, this cooperative agreement will produce a feasibility report framing the steps needed to implement a national cyber incident reporting and response center for threats impacting individuals and SMBs.

CSN encourages everyone to visit FraudSupport.org/Victim-Resource-Catalog/ to check out the new Victim Resource Catalog and share with family and friends.
