Click Armor is proud to announce that we have published our first episode of the “Can I Be Phished?” podcast, where we take a closer look at some of the most common and dangerous phishing attacks and scams. The podcast is available on Youtube for video and on popular podcast feeds for audio. You can click on the video or audio players below, or subscribe on your favorite podcast app.
NOTE: Due to the visual nature of the phishing email analysis, the video version provides the best experience. However, I explain the key details of what I’m seeing for audio listeners.
Try the “CAN I BE PHISHED?” online self-assessment game to get a taste of how fun and effective gamified learning and assessment can be.
The Click Armor Phishing Checklist
In each episode, we’ll use our basic phishing checklist to analyze a different phishing message, so you can learn the clues about what to look for, to avoid becoming a victim. Here’s the basic Checklist:
1) Gut Feel Garbage
2) Sender Sanity
3) Link Elusiveness
4) Body Believability
The best way to use the checklist is to try to disqualify a message with each check. If you haven’t thrown out the message by the time you’re finished step 4, it’s not a guarantee that the message is safe. So, if you still aren’t sure, you should ask for help from an IT support person.
