Phishing Around – how to stop those weird emails!

phishing

As you learned in our last blog about email scams – phishing is a very real and dangerous way that hackers try to infiltrate you and your company.

Hackers will send out emails in hopes to obtain sensitive data such as personally identifiable information, banking and credit card details, passwords, and other information that should not be given out. These scams happen every day all over the country. Even when you know what to expect when you are looking for phishing emails, there are other precautions you should take, as well as the products that we offer!

ProStratus Phishing Support

  • Phishing Training. At ProStratus, we train our clients on what a phishing email looks like and how to stay away from them. We believe training is important no matter what someone is doing in life. No one would expect to succeed on the football field if they didn’t train, and it is no different than when facing phishing emails either.
  • Weed out the Weak. We use software that allows us to send out fake phishing emails to see if someone in your business is at risk of opening them, thereby potentially putting your security at risk.
  • Spam Filtering. Giving our customers access to Office 365 allows them to utilize the spam filtering that Outlook provides. On top of this, we give our customers our own spam filtering software that weeds out the phishing emails and other malicious viruses that attempt to attack your computer.

All these things help keep you and your business safe. Contact us today and ask about our security packages for your business!
