Recognize the Risk: Phishing Attacks

Growing up, we are taught to be vigilant in public spaces, keep a close eye on our valuables, and look both ways before crossing the street. In a nutshell, we get equipped with the acumen required to recognize and assess risk when we see it.

But now that the line between the digital and physical worlds is blurring faster than ever, can we safely say that we are just as apt to recognize risk in our virtual lives?

With the launch of our new video series, Recognize the Risk, we aim to help MSPs and their clients sharpen their ability to spot online threats and safely navigate around them.

Each video in this series will focus on a particular cybersecurity threat and present an actual real-life scenario where one might encounter it online. We'll briefly go over how the hack works, highlight the telltale signs to watch out for, and offer some tips on how you can avoid it.

In the first installment, we examine one of the most common ways companies get hacked: phishing attacks. Believe it or not, one harmless-looking email could lead to a set of credentials getting compromised, and potentially the entire company. But that can easily be prevented if you recognize the risk.

In addition to ensuring that everyone on your team is aware of this threat, one way you can give your organization an additional layer of protection is by using a password manager, which will only autofill credentials on legitimate webpages, but not on fraudulent ones.
