Staying Off the Hook

Phishing stands as the most prevalent form of social engineering — a sophisticated tactic in which a threat actor fabricates a compelling narrative to manipulate you into performing actions on their behalf or disclosing private information.

This deceptive technique primarily occurs via email but can also manifest through text (smishing) or phone calls (vishing).

How You Can Stay Vigilant

  • Verify the sender’s identity.
  • Exercise caution with links and attachments.
  • If the email raises suspicion, utilize the “Report” button in Outlook or forward it to for further review.
