How to avoid phishing emails

30 Apr 2019

Phishing emails are emails sent to you or to your business to gain access to your data or to trick money out of your company (or clients).

These emails are Frauds, scheming and scams – attackers commonly target unsuspecting email accounts hoping to make a quick buck, hijack bank details, find passwords, and all kinds of private information.

The worst part is: these can come from someone you already know and trust – without their knowledge – something we won’t dig into too much in this information sheet.

Having an antivirus or spam filter is not enough (Although it is highly recomended that you use a spam filter service on your email service (Including Office365) and antivirus protection for your business computers).

It’s like opening your door willingly to a stranger. Clicking on links or downloading anything from emails can still harm your computer, or worse –compromise your information where attackers have access to everything.
