Technology That Let's You Focus On What Really Matters
90% of modern data breaches now involve a phishing attack- these attacks usually consist of fake emails designed to look like they're coming from a brand or institution that you trust. The phishers goal is to entice you to click a link or download an attachment, in turn, putting malicious files on your computer to steal your identity, breach your employer's systems, and more. 

THE BEST WAY TO DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST PHISHING ATTACKS IS TO IDENTIFY PHONY EMAILS BEFORE YOU CLICK THEM 

1. Who is the real sender? Watch out for for addresses that contain typos in the organization name (amazOn.com)

2. Check the greeting- If you do business with an organization, the first line of the email should always contain your name, not impersonal introductions like "Dear Customer."

3. Use your mouse hover- always hover over an email link to see the full URL it will direct you to before clicking

4. What's in the footer? The footer of any legitimate email should contain, at minimum: A physical address for the brand or institution, and an unsubscribe button.

5. When in doubt, delete: If something seems off or you don't know the sender, delete the email.
