We need a way to warn each other about scams. Attackers can target many, and can catch one in minutes.

Without an easy and fast way to share and check scam information:

  • somebody is likely to fall for one
  • people won’t know what to look for at the moment they are attacked
  • people are confused on where to report or check suspicious messages

Some organizations use a “report phishing” button in their email client. But these messages often go into a black hole where no timely information comes back about whether or not they did the right thing.

A simple way that often works for smaller organizations is to have a “team chat” channel where people can post a screenshot if they see something, and others can comment on it.

It’s easy to go back and see recent phishing messages, which are likely to be timely for all employees. Does your organization have an easy way for employees to collaborate to reduce risks of scams and phishing attacks?
