What is Email Phishing?
Phishing is when a 3rd party, typically a hacker or malicious website, uses the brand identity of a company to lull a user into exposing private information.
There are two types of email phishing:
- Phishing emails that come to you
- Phishing emails that come from you
Phishing emails leverage the brands of legitimate businesses to implant malware in an attachment or download or obtain login credentials. Phishing is still the primary method of obtaining credentials for attacks. You need to know how to protect yourself, your users and your business from phishing.
