Course overview

Ever heard of Phishing? We’re not talking about an angler baiting their rod and casting to see what they can hook. Oh, hang on. We sort of are. Phishing is a type of cyber attack that criminals might use to get something from you. Personal information, money directly or something else entirely. They lure you in and hope you bite. Alright, it’s a lazy analogy, but it’s an appropriate one. Phishing techniques are becoming more sophisticated, and if you don’t know how to protect yourself, you too could become another victim of this fast-growing weapon in a cybercriminal’s armoury.

Learning objectives:

  • Recognise common types of phishing attack
