What is phishing?

Phishing is an attempt to gain the private information of others by sending emails impersonating a business. This private information may include passwords, credit card details, and personal information.

How do I detect phishing?

Be aware of emails that...

  • do not address you by name
  • contain links
  • have incorrect spelling/grammar
  • show a different URL if you hover over the link
