It is often easy to take the “that could never happen to me” mentality. We’ve all heard the story of someone’s uncle who was catfished out of his life savings by someone from another country whom he never met, but is the love of his life. While the need for human connection may not be every individual’s weak point, everyone has at least one. In the business environment, humans are invariably the weak link in the security chain. Cybercriminals are particularly adept at manipulating the human element to extort money, intellectual property, and resources.
Email is such a seamless part of everyday life that it is easy to take for granted just how vulnerable anyone can be to a well-crafted effort to steal your identity or confidential financial information. One of the most effective methods used by hackers is phishing, which entails trying to trick you into clicking on a link or attachment in an email.
