Updated Apr 29, 2020

You've likely received phishing emails. They're the emails that bait you to click on them. They show up in all forms, from blatantly fake emails, to confusing emails coming from your actual contacts, to emails disguised to look just like your bank or Netflix, or some other trusted provider. They almost always contain a link that they want you to click, or prompt you to fill out a form, or pay money, or otherwise ask you to reveal personal information in some way. In this course, we'll discuss why phishing emails are so successful, what you should do if you suspect you've received a phishing email, and the steps to take if you inadvertently click on a link.
