Phishing Emails - It's Tricky

Happy Computing Tip #120

What do you do when you leave your home?

Most of the time we lock our door. Perhaps we have even invested in various security systems to make sure our home is safe. Why? Our home is valuable, almost everything we own is there so we aren’t going to take chances in losing what we own. You NEED to take similar precautions when it comes to technology, especially if your business relies on it!! So please keep reading to note what you can do to keep your precious data safe.

Pause & Look For the Traps
  1. Never Believe, “It Won’t Happen to Me : Be mindful when you open emails. It’s easy to be easily swayed by what these emails are asking you to do so keep your eyes open and be aware that not all links in emails are trustworthy.

  2. Ask Yourself These Questions : Who is this from? Would they send this link to me? What is the subject of this email? How does the domain of this email compare to previous emails that I have received from this company?

  3. Make Sure You Have an Antivirus Software : We’ve said it before and we will say it again, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So make sure you have a reliable antivirus software and that it’s up to date on all your devices. It may just be the very thing that saves you from losing your precious data.
