The prevalence of phishing scams is at an all-time high. Because you are the key to preventing a cyber-attack within your organization, it is important to question the legitimacy of every email you receive. Below is a list of questions to ask yourself about the recipient of the email that may help you realize that you are being phished.
TO: Analyze Who was the Email Sent to
- Were you CC’d on an email and you don’t personally know the other people it was sent to?
- Was the email sent to an unusual mix of people? For example, a seemingly random group of people with unrelated email addresses, or a group of people at your organization whose last names all start with the same letter.
Stop, Look, and Think. Don't be fooled.
