THE BUSINESS OWNER’S COMPLETE GUIDE TO PHISHING

It’s likely you’ve heard of phishing and know it’s something you want to avoid.

But do you know what it really means and exactly how a phishing attack works?

In our experience, lots of people don’t know the specifics. And that’s OK. But the key to keeping your business protected from phishing attacks is to know exactly how they work and the red flags to look out for.

WHAT EXACTLY IS PHISHING?

It’s called ‘phishing’ because cyber criminals bait unsuspecting victims into ‘biting’, much in the same way you’d lure a fish to a hook with a big juicy maggot.

This virtual bait is usually in the form of an email. And when the victim gets hooked, their device and potentially their whole network can become infected with malware.

Or the victim is enticed into giving away login credentials which can lead to data and even financial theft.

Phishing isn’t just inconvenient. You should see how much time, expense and stress has to be invested in fixing the damage.

Understand this: You want to avoid a phishing attack. The best way to do that is be informed and the best way to do that is download our guide.
