Phishing Message Quizzes




Hackers spend so much of their time focusing on ways to trick individuals via phishing scams because it allows them to parley stolen access into a major data breach.

Since it only takes one person in an organization to fall for a fake message, they have refined their development tools to improve their chances of success.

We have for years stressed the value of using the hover method for uncovering mischievous links in email messages.

When you hover the mouse pointer over the link either a smart icon will pop up or the destination will be displayed on the bottom left corner.

This allows you to examine the actual destination that the link will take you so you can see if it looks suspicious.

Another great way to learn common tricks is by taking the various phishing quizzes that are posted online at places like:
