Part of VinciWorks’ cyber security training

This micro course is part of a 20 minute cyber security course [3], a journey through a series of interactive apps just like this one. The course will help users understand their cyber security weak points, how to identify and avoid social engineering and how to avoid phishing emails or unsafe websites. You can demo the course here [4].

Why phishing?

Phishing is becoming a growing threat to our security.  Even if your organisation’s IT department is doing everything to make their computer system safe, one employee can bring down the organisation through a phishing scam. For example, simply clicking on a PDF attachment [5] can compromise your account details, as well as that of your colleagues, friends and family.

Every organisation should ask itself:

Does the organisation’s account manager know how to differentiate between fake invoices and real ones?
