Scammers and cyber-attackers have found a cost-effective, time-saving way get their hands on your personal information – through email. One of the most common things to be on the lookout for is phishing. Phishing can occur over email when a scammer uses fraudulent messages to get you to share personal information (Social Security numbers, banking information, account passwords, etc.). Email can be dangerous for another reason – attachments or random links in emails can contain malware, and opening or clicking on them lets the attackers past any defenses you might have.
Luckily for you (and not so luckily for fraudsters), there are a few simple things you can do to keep your information safe and your computer system secure. Stop these attacks before they get to your machine!
