Example of a phishing email

Mike Ritsema, after seeing the email, forwarded it to our security training professional, Benny, and asked to confirm if it was part of a security test for the week. Benny responded, "Not me. This is a legitimate phishing email."

Even our IT specialists receive these phishing emails - chances are, your employees do, too. Remember to always stay cautious, especially when it comes to emails from well-recognized companies. Scammers can easily tweak corporate emails and replace the content with malicious links. Train your employees regularly on cybersecurity and the risks involved.
