Phishing

What is Phishing?

phishing

According to United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-Cert), “Phishing is an attempt by an individual or group to solicit personal information from unsuspecting users by employing social engineering techniques. Phishing emails are crafted to appear as if they have been sent from a legitimate organization or known individual. These emails often attempt to entice users to click on a link that will take the user to a fraudulent website that appears legitimate. The user then may be asked to provide personal information such as account usernames and passwords that can further expose them to future compromises. Additionally, these fraudulent websites may contain malicious code."

The Anti-Phishing Working Group has compiled the below list of recommendations that you can use to avoid becoming a victim of these scams. Be suspicious of any email with urgent requests for personal financial information.
