Cyber Security

Spoofing Attacks

Scammers use ‘spoofing’ techniques to pretend to be someone or something that they aren’t. Why do they do it? To get access to your money or data, or to gain access to your device or your employer’s system. Spoofing can mean that you get tricked into clicking on malicious links or downloading malicious software. Falling for these nasty tricks or always believing that emails and texts are genuine puts you or your company at risk of loss. So, it’s essential that you know what to look for and how to avoid becoming a victim of a spoofing attack.

Learning outcomes:
  • Recognise the types of spoofing
  • Explain how spoofing attacks work
  • Demonstrate how to detect and protect against spoofing attacks
