Organizations and individual employees are often perceived as easy targets for cybercriminals to attack via phishing emails – emails that are disguised to originate from a legitimate government institution or a bank. Receivers are often tricked by these disguised emails into clicking on a link that will prompt the reader for their personal information and bank account details. Here are some tips on how to detect a phishing email.
It is likely to be a phishing email if it:
- Contains Spelling Errors / Is Poorly Written
- Asks for Personal Information
- Creates a Sense of Urgency
- Contains Suspicious Links / Attachments
- Has a Different Domain Name as Apparent Sender
