How to detect a malicious email
Blog|by Leanne Bevan|18 October 2022
One of our leading cyber security vendors, Heimdal Security, has shared some key signs on how you can detect a malicious email. Take a look below.
Prevent a phishing attack by following these steps:
- Check the displayed name against the actual name - fraudsters often impersonate legitimate or fake people.
- Be aware of general or impersonal greetings such as "Dear Friend".
- Any email that asks for funds to be transferred should be viewed with suspicion.
- In addition, any email asking for personal details, such as bank details, should be viewed with caution.
- Beware of unsolicited password request emails.
- Always inspect a link by hovering over the link first. If in doubt, don't click it.
If you're still unsure, contact your IT department to check the email too.
