5 Signs of Phishing E-mails

Phishing scams are cyberattacks that impersonate organizations or people to obtain sensitive information or deploy ransomware. Here are 5 signs that the email you received is likely a phishing scam:

  1. Asks for sensitive and personal information
  2. Sense of urgency in the message with the intent to panic the recipient
  3. Uses a different domain than the company they are impersonating
  4. includes spelling mistakes or poor grammar
  5. Uses a generic message, not personalized to the recipient

Keep these identifiers in mind before clicking on links in suspicious emails. Phishing attacks can disrupt a whole organization’s protected data. To keep your organization protected invest in network security and endpoint protection software. Here are a few great brands to choose from.
