Phishing is one of the easiest forms of cyber attack for criminals to carry out, and one of the easiest to fall for. It's also one that can provide everything hackers need to ransack their targets' personal and work accounts.

A basic phishing attack attempts to trick a user into entering personal details or other confidential information, and email is the most common method of performing these attacks.

The sheer number of emails sent every single day means that it's an obvious attack vector for cybercriminals. It's estimated that 3.7 billion people send around 269 billion emails every single day.

Phishing scams continue to proliferate at alarming rates and are becoming more and more difficult to detect. It's important for you to understand how to recognize a phishing attempt and what you can do to protect yourself.

Follow the tips below and stay better protected against phishing attacks.
  • Do not click on any links listed in the email message, and do not open any attachments contained in a suspicious email.
  • Be cautious about all communications you receive. If it appears to be a phishing communication, do not respond. Delete it. You can also forward it to the Federal Trade Commission at [email protected].
  • Install a phishing filter on your email application and also on your web browser. These filters will not keep out all phishing messages, but they will reduce the number of phishing attempts.
  • Do not enter personal information on a pop-up screen. Legitimate companies, agencies, and organizations don't ask for personal information via pop-up screens.

Thank You.

There are a few simple things you can do to help protect yourself from phishing emails. Be suspicious of emails that ask for personal information such as account passwords or credit card numbers. If an email looks strange, be sure to investigate the link it contains before responding. And never give out personally identifiable information, even if the person asking seems legitimate.
