What Is Phishing?

Phishing is the act of tricking someone into revealing their private or sensitive information. Common attacks attempt to convince you to install malicious software or hand over your personal information under false pretenses.

How To Counter an Attack

In order to counter this threat and ultimately keep data safe and compliance efforts in line, organizations need a mix of technical controls and awareness training of high-profile targets.

Through the use of training memos, in-person demos and awareness campaigns, ensure the leaders of your organization know the risks of falling for a phishing attack, as well as the signs of an attack in process.  Inform them to never click on a link in an email, chat session, blog or other medium.  Eliminating this one action severely reduces the chance of you becoming a victim.
