Don't be the 'catch of the day'

About this Event

Nope, we’re not inviting you to go fishing, instead we’re inviting you to come and hear more about ‘phishing’. We ran a session in February and it was so popular we’re planning another session.

Phishing is a growing risk for all of us, at work and at home. In the last month we’ve had 70,000 attempts by fraudsters to access our data and system via phishing emails. You might think spotting a phishing email is easy; unfortunately, these days fraudsters are taking new approaches making them harder and harder to spot.

So, through this lunch and learn session we’d like to offer you the opportunity to understand how easy it is to get tricked by phishing emails and what the best practices are to avoid being caught out. We’ll show you how a fraudster will attempt to gather information, from your bank account to your email and password, so they’re able to try and access your account on different websites, allowing them to make purchases or steal your data.

We know phishing can sound scary, and to help you to protect yourself we’ll be sharing some of the simple steps that you can take to avoid becoming a target of phishing emails, as well as how our Golden Rules of Information Security could help prevent you from being ‘phished’.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
