We all love films about hacking. Like when a detective is trying to get access to a secret computer and manages to crack the code just before the criminal comes through the door. These films can be exciting. But did you know, hacking isn’t just about glamorous cases like taking over government schemes or robbing banks? Usually, it’s pretty run-of-the-mill stuff like accessing your email or your online shopping account.
Hackers and cybercriminals are always trying to find a way into your systems for their own personal gain. An obvious way in for them is through your emails. Malware sent as links or attachments could wreak havoc, as could phishing attacks, which try to con you into clicking links and giving away your data on bogus websites.
You need to be savvy when it comes to protecting your emails. A securely set up email system is your shield from these bad guys. Using passwords, encryption, and common sense, you put a metaphorical bouncer on the door and beef them up to repel attackers.
Ever heard of Phishing? We’re not talking about an angler baiting their rod and casting to see what they can hook. Oh, hang on. We sort of are. Phishing is a type of cyberattack that a criminal might use to get something from you. Personal information, money directly, or something else entirely. They lure you in and hope you bite.
Alright, it’s a lazy analogy, but it’s an appropriate one. Phishing techniques are becoming more sophisticated, and if you don’t know how to protect yourself, you too could become another victim of this fast-growing weapon in a cybercriminal’s armoury.
