Earlier this year at the onset of the Coronavirus Pandemic, PC magazine reported that phishing attacks increased by 350%.
In order to protect your business from these attacks, it is important to first understand exactly what is phishing?
Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information or data, such as usernames, passwords, and credit card information, by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
But, here are some things you can do about these attacks.
1. Pay attention to the websites you go to — the URL is usually a dead giveaway.
2. Only open emails that come from a trusted source.
3. Use a password manager and a VPN to keep your information safe and privacy intact.
