Protecting Office 365 users from phishing emails.
While phishing attack awareness training for all email users is critical, anti-phishing technology like Vade Secure should be considered as non-negotiable.
Here are three measures Microsoft Office email users can adopt, to avoid being phished:
• Hover over links-Hovering over the link in an email displays the URL even before you click it. So if the URL appears suspicious do not click on the link.
• Do not log in to critical apps from email-If you are suspicious of an email alert, do not log in to the app from within the email. Instead, log in to the application in your browser to ensure the demand/request you received in the email is legitimate.
• Email awareness training for all employees-All users should be trained periodically, in order to spot the latest phishing techniques and attacks. Users should be retrained if and when they click on dangerous emails to ensure that the training is fresh in their minds.
Vade Secure helps Office 365 users from email security threats such as malware, phishing and spear phishing.
