WEN Lunch and Learn Series (Online): Phishing scams and how to protect yourself

  • 8 Jun 2023

  • Online


Registration is closed

Phishing is a very common problem that affects millions of people around the world every year.

Phishing has nothing to do with fish…. though the concept is very similar.

Phishing is a type of online scam where the attacker tries to trick the victim into giving away their sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, credit card details, or other personal information, and then they reel you in.

All it takes is a single person in the company to get Phished successfully and the whole organisation can fall prey.

PHISHING ATTACKS Cost HK$2.04 billion in 2022. Were you one of the victims? This is a growth industry and is getting increasingly more sophisticated.

Automated layers comprising anti-virus, anti-malware and numerous other protections are only so good and none ever offer you 100% protection.

Being aware of and sensitising yourselves and your colleagues is primarily the first and best line of defence to avoid attacks and build a Human Firewall. Education is key.

Come and listen to our presenter, a certified Forensics expert, as he explains some of the many ways to spot and stop the most common forms of attack.
