It has recently been drawn to our attention that emails purporting to come from the CMS Secretariat have asked recipients to urgently click on links or download attachments in relation to official meetings. We would like to warn all our contacts to be extremely vigilant that only emails received from the @cms.int or @un.org domain names are official. We advise everyone to ignore and immediately delete any suspicious email sent from free email platforms such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc. using the name of the Secretariat or pretending to be sent on its behalf. Please exercise the utmost care.
