The LSC-OIG has seen an increase in cyber threats targeting LSC grantee programs since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the OIG has produced several resources to inform grantees of the pending threats which aim to assist grantees in preventing, detecting, and reporting the cyber threats.
