Source Protection Programme: Phishing 101

Phishing is a digital attempt by a bad actor (e.g. hackers, data-mining companies) to persuade you to reveal your personal information (e.g. passwords, credit card numbers) often received via email or text message. Phishing messages have become more advanced and harder to identify. In this activity-based session we will give you some tips and tricks you can use to determine if a message is authentic and safe, or suspicious and dangerous.
