  1. Hey thanks for posting the information.
    n my opinion The best way to prevent phishing attacks is creating customer awareness. Some important points that need to be communicated to the customers include the following:

    Organizations should constantly remind their customers that they will never request for sensitive information via e-mails. Moreover all email communications should address the customer by first and last name.
    Customers need to be educated not to click on URL of critical website (e.g. Internet banking website) that comes via email but visit these websites by directly typing the address in the browser.
    Customers should be educated on identifying secure websites, like https in URL or ‘Lock’ icon, before submitting username, password, credit card number and other sensitive information.
    Customers should be educated about choosing strong passwords and the importance of changing them regularly.
    Customers should be educated to be suspicious of any e-mail with urgent request for personal information.
    Customers should be provided with easy methods to report phishing incidents.
