Is That Really a Text from Your CEO… or Is It a Scam?

Learn how employees fall for phishing scams and how to avoid them. Scammers use social engineering tactics to manipulate emotions, such as creating a sense of urgency and the desire to help, to get employees to fall for their scams. In one example, an Illinois woman lost over $6,000 after receiving a fake email request from her company’s CEO. To avoid falling for phishing scams, always double-check unusual requests, don’t react emotionally, and get a second opinion. Proper employee phishing awareness training is crucial to keep your team safe from these increasingly sophisticated scams.
