What is Phishing?

Phishing is a type of fraud that causes victims to reveal sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes physical identity) by disguising as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. This may be done by email spoofing or instant messaging, and modern phishing attacks also often take advantage of VoIP and social networks to encourage recipients to divulge personal information through "friendly" requests for help.

These articles detail the risks of phishing and strategies for defending against them, including enabling two-factor authentication, implementing malware detection software, and training employees about phishing threats.
