To do that we’ve created AwareGO’s School of PhishA monthly spotlight on the most common phishing schemes. It takes you from Phishing 101 and beyond. You won’t be fooled by phishing anytime soon.

The Phishing Pond is Getting Bigger

Cybercriminals are getting better at creating targeted and believable phishing attacks. Even the most vigilant among us can fall for it. Better machine translations open up more geographic and linguistic areas for the hackers, creating a bigger pond to phish for victims. Furthermore, cybercriminals are also becoming keen marketers. They use seasonal topics for their phishing attempts, tailoring them to what is happening around us for maximum effect.

One of the best ways to prevent cyber crimes and phishing is through knowledge and awareness. AwareGO’s School of Phish helps raise awareness on what kind of phishing scams are in season for each month of the year.
