How To Know If Someone is Phishing For You
August 30, 2017
With recent issues surrounding the Philippine banking industry, people have to be well-equipped to protect themselves from individuals looking to take advantage of those unaware. One of the more prominent techniques that thieves use is phishing.
Phishing is not new; it is an old technique that thieves use to get information about yourself, your credentials, and your financial accounts. In local News, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (Central Bank of the Philippines) has mandated that local banks switch to EMV cards in order to prevent victims of skimming with a deadline that has been set for June 30, 2018. Although it is not directly related to solving concerns on phishing, it is a sign that banks are putting efforts into increasing their clients’ cybersecurity protocols against cybercrime.
To protect yourself between today and until your preferred financial services institution puts additional safety protocols, here are some tips from our Pointwest Technical Security Group.
