Phishing is a form of social engineering that has increased dramatically in its abundance. Teachers need to know how to protect themselves against the phishing scams that are prevalent today. The ability to determine what is real and what is a phishing expedition is critical. The reasons a person will click on a link contained in a scam email are important to understand. Knowledge of the basic structure and intent of a phishing expedition, as well as how it is targeted enables more accurate identification of scams in your inbox. Once teachers have a better understanding of a phishing scam, they will be better able to teach their students self-defense against phishing in our technological world.
