Fishing outdoors is one thing but when it comes to cybersecurity, phishing is a whole different world.
Although it might seem like a fun weekend activity, phishing in the technology world is a bad weekend waiting to happen. The term phishing is when a potential hacker sends an email to you hoping you will open it, download the damaging software, or open an attachment which allows the hacker to access your computer and all its vital information.
It seems easy enough to know not to open a suspicious email, right? Unfortunately, hackers have become good at disguising the email to appear as though it is coming from a legitimate person; even making it look like it is from someone you know.
In a recent radio interview, Adam Jurgens, Hamilton New Business Developer discussed the clever ways hackers grab your attention and entice you to open malicious emails, getting you to provide your login and password credentials. He discusses the process and importance of testing and educating your employees on the topic. Take a listen to the interview below.
