IS Tuesday security tip: Confidence trick

Cybercriminals will try to trick you into giving them your information, for example by sending fake emails with links to convincing but fraudulent websites.

They want to tap your bank account, use your credit cards and spend your money.

Protect yourself against phishing and spoofing:

  • block unwanted spam email – this will also block most phishing emails
  • use a modern, updated web browser that will warn you against known phishing websites
  • don’t give away your password or any other personal information
