What problem does it address?

The most common cyber threat is ‘phishing’ where you receive a bogus email linking you to a fraudulent website. Alternatively, you may be asked to click on a link or open an attachment.

Cyber Criminals broadcast emails at random pretending to represent, banks, credit card issuers, tax officials, online shopping outlets, delivery companies, and suppliers. It doesn’t matter if only a tiny proportion of recipients fall for the scam because so many people are targeted at once.

Their scams can seem very realistic. Criminals go as far as to collect information on individuals to make their emails seem more trustworthy to the victim. They spoof their email addresses using details of trusted contacts to make an email look legitimate. You should always work on the assumption that any emails asking for personal or security details are scams unless, and until, you can verify their authenticity by some other means.

Some 91% of cyber-attacks begin with a "spear phishing" email, according to research from security software firm Trend Micro.
