A Brief Recap Before You Leave

  • Instead of forced entry, spear phishing aims to trick users into giving their key to hackers.
  • You don't have to take the bait. Spear phishing can be avoided if you know how to look for it.
  • Security isn't something that's just for IT. Security is a culture and needs to flow from the top down.
  • Remember, the goal isn't to make things difficult for people in your organisation. The goal is to protect your people.
