This episode features my guest Ted Demopoulos, a veteran security consultant and author I’ve known for many years. Ted works in all areas of security, and is very active in helping consultants and entrepreneurs build their companies. Ted helps me unbox a phishing message that appears to be from an email administrator saying that my account needs to be updated.

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.

Special Guest for Episode #4: Ted Demopoulos

After analyzing the phising message, Ted shares his experiences with phishing incidents and his observations on cyber risks.
