Don't Fall for Phishing Scams:
How to Spot and Stop Them

We’ve tackled the important of staff within an organisation being the first line of defence a few times in our blogs and newsletters. Business owners are equally as vital in a business’ cyber defence strategy and need to provide the building blocks to their staff to protect the organisation. 

As a business owner in today’s fast-paced digital landscape, you understand the vital role that technology plays in your operations. However, with innovation comes a new wave of challenges, and some of the most insidious threats you should be aware of are phishing scams. These cunning cyberattacks can wreak havoc on your business if you or your staff are not vigilant. Here’s what you need to know to protect your enterprise.

Phishing: Deceptive attempts by cybercriminals to obtain sensitive information such as passwords, credit card details, and confidential business data. These attacks often arrive disguised as legitimate emails, luring recipients into revealing crucial information or clicking malicious links.


5 Tips to Outsmart Phishers

  1. Verify the Source: Scrutinise sender email addresses and URLs. Legitimate companies won’t ask for sensitive information via email.
  2. Hover Before You Click: Hover your cursor over links to reveal the true destination before clicking. Be cautious of unexpected or misspelled URLs. Implement a Time of Click Protection or Link Isolation solution for added security. 
  3. Beware of Urgency: Phishers create urgency to manipulate your actions. Think twice before acting hastily. Is your manager really needing you to complete an “urgent task”?
  4. Double-Check Requests: If an email requests sensitive data or money, confirm the legitimacy by contacting the sender directly through official channels. Don’t use emails or phone numbers on the email, use verified contact details already on file.
  5. Stay Informed: Regularly educate your staff about phishing risks and prevention techniques.

Alarming Statistics
