Phishing attacks are one of the most common security challenges companies and individuals face when it comes to keeping their information safe.

3 popular phishing scams are:

Mass Phishing: This attack does not target a specific person, but instead attempts to access all of someone’s sensitive information internally.
Spear phishing: These emails are personalized and appear to come from an acquaintance of the recipient, such as a colleague or company manager.
Whale phishing: This threat specifically targets a small number of business leaders and high-value employees.

Protect yourself and your organization using the RESTT Test:

  • ‘R’: a request is made for your personal information.
  • ‘E’: stands for emotion. They play on your emotions. For example, “click here or you’ll lose your benefits.” Or “Give-away coupons. Click here and get yours now”.
  • ‘S’: stands for spelling. Watch out for grammatical errors.
  • ‘T’: Stands for think before you click.
  • And finally we add a ‘T’, which stands for terminate. Delete such emails immediately from your inbox.
