An essential introduction to the danger which Phishing and Spear-Phishing poses to your data
he value of information is increasing and, as more measures are introduced to protect it, criminals are developing new approaches to information extraction.
Two of these are Phishing and Spear-Phishing; As the names suggest they share similarities, but whilst Phishing involves casting out a large net to see what it can pull in, Spear-Phishing is used against a carefully selected target.
During this bite-size session, lecturer Robert Edwards will provide viewers with an overview of the mechanisms of Phishing and Spear-Phishing and how these strategies can be used to effect unauthorised access to valuable information.
Robert will instil viewers with the importance of having procedural safeguards in place to protect yourself and how curiosity can pose the greatest risk to your data.
