Phishing scams have been with us since the dawn of the Internet. They'll stay with us until we all learn to stop falling for these scams (so, basically, they'll be with us forever). Our primary focus as your IT services partner is to secure the perimeter of your business – we keep the bad stuff out as much as possible. Even with up-to-date antivirus patches, the best firewalls, and constantly evolving security methods as best practices change; there's no such thing as a 100%, impervious network security. Some phishing scam attacks can make it through to your (and your employees') inboxes. Once that happens, it's up to you to be educated enough to not fall for a phishing scam. Unfortunately, they're not all as obvious as Nigerians looking to rain money upon us in return for our bank account information. And, seriously, who falls for that!?!?!? Like in poker though, there are some “tells” for identifying a phishing scam.
