He had in his bank account a Billon dolars which will be transfer to non profit organization at least someone claims. I am writing to you since you have the same family name and you are elegible to claim the account. I will asist you on the process and I will ask 20% of the money. In order to proceed please sent us your bank account details. Looking forward to hearing about you. Best Regards, Mr account Manager Bank of... Telephone: " Then they have your contact information, and probably they will ask to transfer some money for expenses. There are other mails that ask you to confirm your information. The mail is supossed to be from your bank, but the link takes you to a fake website. Best Regards to everyone.

There are multiple steps an organization or an idividual  can take to protect against phishing. They must keep a pulse on the current phishing strategies and confirm their security policies and solutions can eliminate threats as they evolve. It is equally as important to make sure that their employees understand the types of attacks they may face, the risks, and how to address them. Informed employees and properly secured systems are key when protecting the organization or an idividual  from phishing attacks.

There are various phishing techniques used by attackers: and these are vary be time :(
  • Installing a Trojan via a malicious email attachment or ad which will allow the intruder to exploit loopholes and obtain sensitive information
  • Embedding a link in an email that redirects your employee to an unsecure website that requests sensitive information
  • Attempting to obtain company information over the phone by impersonating a known company vendor or IT department
  • Spoofing the sender address in an email to appear as a reputable source and request sensitive information
Here are a few steps an organization can take to protect itself against phishing:
  • Develop a security policy that includes but isn't limited to password expiration and complexity.
  • Deploy a SPAM filter that detects viruses, blank senders, etc.
  • Keep all systems current with the latest security patches and updates.
  • Educate your employees and conduct training sessions with mock phishing scenarios.
  • Install an antivirus solution, schedule signature updates, and monitor the antivirus status on all equipment.
  • Deploy a web filter to block malicious websites.
  • Encrypt all sensitive company information.

Absolutely. I feel like this is nowhere near common enough, I would suggest that this is the single most fundamental aspect of preventing a cyber attack, both in a personal and professional sense. In today's world, identifying social engineering and phishing should be taught in schools, everybody should have at least a basic understanding of how to avoid simple mistakes that could lead to exploitation.

The phishing scam is one of the most effective scams and it targets those who are not aware of that and can easily get along to it and can not see the differences between the genuine email and fake email. I have faced the scam and because of that my system was getting hacked and it had an issue of Microsoft compatibility telemetry
