Everywhere we go one common threat which keeps putting users in danger is phishing emails, and how people react to them. It is late on Friday, you want to get out the door, an email comes in from the boss asking you to check something before you go, you click on it – you are now compromised. 

In this talk we will consider how to identify some of the common characteristics of a phishing email, some of the latest trends and developments in the world of phishing, and some simple basic steps everyone can take to limit the damage if you do click on one by mistake.

Attendance at this meeting is free of charge and open to all. Please email to book a place.
