Recognizing and Preventing Phishing Attacks

Training on Recognizing and Preventing Phishing Attacks

Phishing is a term for a major cyber security threat that causes serious operational and financial damage to organizations every year. Like the rod and reel sport, phishing uses different baits and techniques to lure targets into sharing personal or confidential information or downloading malicious software via emails, text messages, phone calls and social media.

The global pandemic, along with more employees working remotely has given hackers new opportunities to take advantage of human emotions and trick people into divulging information and compromising systems. In 2020, 83% of organizations said they experienced phishing attacks. 

As part of a comprehensive cyber security training program, phishing training explains how phishing scams work and prepares employees to recognize different techniques and avoid the risks of costly cyber attacks.
