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.
