Created by Michael Mcmenamin, Modified on Tue, 11 Oct 2022 at 06:28 AM by Michael Mcmenamin

Criminals want to trick you into giving your information to them – this is known as phishing. They're hoping that you’ll click on fake links to sites or open attachments, so they can steal data or install malicious software. Malicious emails account for nearly three quarters of security breaches or attacks. It's often a good idea to pass round screenshots of any phishing emails that have been received by staff to make sure everyone is aware of them and can more easily identify any future suspicious emails.
