Email has become virtually a universal mode of communication for all of us. It is hard to imagine how we managed before the invent of email. But this has also opened opportunities for fraud and theft by criminals and fraudsters, who have become increasingly clever in enticing you to open emails that can result in your personal details being stolen or your email being used for nefarious purposes. This is often referred to as phishing. In addition, cyber criminals are increasingly using the phone to trick unaware users into releasing their personal information which they use for financial gain or to cause harm. This is referred to as vishing which is phishing over the phone. There are other new and old techniques that cyber criminals use against the users which will be covered in this webinar to help you stay cyber-safe and prepared to respond if you are targeted with such attacks.
