    How to protect yourself from phishing?

    • Regularly search for leaked email addresses and passwords on the internet.

    • Use VPNs that offer dark web monitoring to identify any information that has been leaked.

    • Always ensure that you have effective antiviruses and firewalls in place.

    • Practice reenacted spearphishing practices on employees to educate them.

    • Keep your systems and softwares updated.

    • Ensure that you have a high-risk management score, and your organizational controls are in place to effectively prevent phishing.

    • If you have been a phishing victim, contact a restoration specialist, who can help identify your organizational weaknesses to prevent phishing and scams.

    • Always ensure transaction monitoring. If you receive a suspicious email from someone claiming to be an authority, do not respond until you have personally confirmed over the phone or in person.

    • In case of identity theft, immediately contact an identity theft case manager. He can help you with unprecedented issues and can make the whole process much easier for you.

    • Ensure that your organization has sound anti-phishing policies.

    And another option is that delete the email without opening it because most viruses activate when you open an attachment or click a link within an email.

    Be safe have a nice day 🙂
