Don’t Get Hooked

Phishing is a psychological attack used by cyber criminals to trick you into giving up information or taking an action.  Phishing originally described email attacks that would steal your online username and password.  However, the term has evolved and now refers to almost any message based attack.  These attacks begin with a cyber criminal sending a message pretending to be from someone or something you know, such as a friend, your bank or a well known store.  Click here to view a poster with helpful information.
