What is phishing? It is an attempt by someone to gain information from you to steal your identity and profit from that information. Attached is a recent study released at the RSA Conference this year. I found it interesting and wanted to pass it on. The biggest thing to note is that the criminals are constantly changing how they phish. Always validate that the emails you receive are authentic.
Update: I found this McAfee phishing quiz that you can take to see how well you can spot a fake email. Let me know what you scored!
