Tips to Avoid Virtual Attacks

Phishing broadly refers to email attacks, which include fraudulent attempts by an attacker to obtain information about the target, in which the attacker sends an email which appears to be from a trusted source. In many phishing attempts, the email will ask the target to click a link, where they are prompted with a sign-in page. While the page appears to be genuine, by entering your information it hands those sign-in credentials over to the attacker. After an attacker has an email address/password combination from a target, they will attempt to use the same credentials to sign in to bank websites, email accounts, social media accounts and more.
