Stay Secure: How to Protect your Company from Scams and Phishing emails
Updated: Nov 17
In this blog post, I want to share some tips on how to protect your company from scams and phishing emails.
These are malicious messages that try to trick you into revealing sensitive information or installing malware on your devices.
Here are some simple steps you can take to spot and avoid them:
Check the sender's address and domain name. If they don't match the official website or email of the organization they claim to represent, it's likely a scam.
Look for spelling and grammar errors, or unusual formatting and language. These are signs of a poorly crafted message that may not be legitimate.
Don't click on any links or attachments without verifying them first. You can hover your mouse over a link to see where it leads, or scan an attachment with an antivirus software before opening it.
If you receive an email that asks you for personal or financial information, or urges you to take immediate action, be suspicious. Legitimate organizations will never ask you for such details over email, or pressure you to do something quickly.
If you are not sure about an email, contact the sender directly using a different channel, such as phone or another email address. Don't reply to the suspicious email or use the contact information provided in it.
If you think you have received a scam or phishing email, don't panic. Here's what you can do:
Delete the email from your inbox and trash folder.
Report the email to your IT department or security team, and to the organization that was impersonated.
Change your passwords and monitor your accounts for any suspicious activity.
By following these simple steps, you can protect yourself and your company from scams and phishing emails. Stay safe and vigilant online!
