Our company sends out periodic email phishing attempts to train us on what to look for and to help keep us vigilant. We even have a little plugin in Outlook that we can “report phishing” and we get a little virtual pat on the back when we spot phishing attempts.
I work in computer security and try to give extra scrutiny to every email I read. Just because I’m savvy to these attempts doesn’t mean I don’t understand that anybody can be vulnerable. But I swear, if I find out anybody on my Security team has clicked the link in the email below … we’re going to have to have some remedial training. There are so many “tells” that this is a phishing attempt, it hurts my eyes to read it.
First rule of anti-phishing club is NEVER click a link in an email.
You thought I was going to say that the rule was not to talk about anti-phishing club, didn’t you? Well, we ALWAYS want to talk about anti-phishing. DON’T CLICK LINKS IN EMAILS!
