The FBI recently issued a Private Industry Notification (PIN) that APT actors in the near future likely intend to target US Cleared Defense Contractors (CDC) via spear phishing or network infrastructure compromises. The FBI warns that open source research of targeted US company websites, particularly sections containing contact information for company officials with names, titles, phone numbers, and email addresses often happens before the spear phishing campaigns.
