Protect your business from spam & phishing attacks

As phishing scams become more widespread, and concern about internet security heightens, it is important to know how to protect your personal information.

To help protect personal information Symantec recommends the following:

1. Always maintain a level of caution around any messages from within a website or that appear to be sent by a website. If a user clicks on a link, double-check the actual domain that is shown at the top of the page. It’s best practice to type the direct Web address directly into your address bar rather than rely upon links from a message.

2. Maintain an up-to-date browser and operating system. Use security software and check out web safety services, where a community of web users collaborate to report dangerous phishing and malware sites.

3. Double check you’ve arrived at the correct destination. When clicking over to any site, make a habit of looking at what appears in the address line. You might not always be able to spot a fake site but it is important to be on the look out.

4. Be suspicious of requests to enter your account name and password.

5. Don’t click on suspicious links or email attachments.
