Re: Great!
This is the exact reason why internet users need to be on their guards at all times. Do not be so naïve and believe everything they see or read on the internet. Prevention is always better than cure and once you have gotten hit, most often than not, there is no turning back. Whatever you read on the internet that is too good to be true, it usually is. Hence, do not fall for anything that may look a little less convincing.

Re: Hmm Phishy
What's most concerning is the number of CISO's and IT people in a position of responsibility that believe training/human awareness is the answer to protecting against phishing attacks.

Re: Hmm Phishy
You would think that by now that people would have the sense to see these "congratulations you've won a million dollars" emails and know better! I mean, of course hackers are getting more and more sophisticated, but a great number of these crazy spam emails are obvious as heck that that's precisely what they are!

Hmm Phishy
Phishing threat is reduced when phishing drills are run. Funny that a company that does that exact thing would come up with that solution.
