In our second episode of Can I Be Phished? we welcome Dave Ockwell-Jenner, the VP of Information Security at Arctic Wolf. Dave helps me unbox another phishing message that is warning me that my online banking service will expire soon.

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.

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.
