Be proactive; Stop phishing with one click
Enhance protection against sophisticated identity deception threats to stay ahead of phishing attacks.
What is Phishing, and how does it work?
Phishing attacks send counterfeit communications via email that appear to come from a trustworthy source but which can compromise all types of data sources. Through malicious links, attacks can facilitate access to your online environment, obtain permissions to modify and compromise connected systems – such as point of sale terminals and order processing systems – and in some cases hijack entire computer networks until a ransom fee is delivered.
How can you tell it’s Phishing?
Do you recognize the email address?
Hover over the name and look at the email. If you recognize it, you should still be cautious of clicking links. If not, do not click any links and mark the email as spam.
Are there attachments in the email?
If so, do not click attachments unless you recognize the email address and know the context of the email.
Are there grammatical errors?
Misspelled words, bad grammar, and numbers used as letters are all telltale signs of phishing, you should be suspicious.
Have you checked the link?
Hover the mouse over the link and check the URL. Do not click unless you recognize the destination.
Does the link look like it would take you to a suspicious website?
If so, don’t click it, mark the email as spam and report the email to whoever is responsible for IT at your organization.
