When allowing people into your home, you’re giving them access to much more of your life than you may realise.
Phishing attacks have grown far more sophisticated and targeted, even a personal email from a source you trust, isn’t necessarily what you think it is.
Spearphishing is the practice of sending emails which are allegedly from a known or trusted sender. The aim is to encourage targeted individuals to reveal confidential information.
The email address will be ‘spoofed’ to look like a legitimate address from a known sender. Knowing what to look out for in a spoof email can help you identify them and respond appropriately.
