Cyber Security Tip #2

Today’s cyber security tip is: Don’t get phished!  The most common and easily detected cyber-crime is phishing. Phishing is a malicious attempt by hackers to acquire sensitive information, such as passwords and credit card numbers, through electronic media. Hackers often pretend to represent a bank or other trusted source in order to lure victims into disclosing information the hacker can then use to access their finances.   Always think before you click on a link or attachment in an email, even if it’s from somebody you know.  Look for oddly spelled words and strange attachments.  Even if it’s from someone you know, ask yourself: ‘Would they really send this?’
