Being able to identify and phishing attempts can help keep you safe online!
A phishing attack is an attempt to socially engineer a user into unknowingly giving up sensitive information. This sensitive information can be used to access user account(s), and steal identities. The attacker pretends to be an individual, group, or organization that can be trusted:
Using strong passwords and multi-factor authentication can strengthen your security stature!
Securing your browser and browsing the web can help keep you safe!
If a website is deemed to be potentially insecure users should try to find an alternative: big name online retailers or brick and mortar stores as an alternative to lesser known, potentially suspicious retail sites (if deemed insecure).
Keeping your devices secure and free from malware is critical!
Identity theft is a serious issue, learn more to be prepared!
