  1. I would like information about what to do when you click on a fake link and open a file that leads you astray. I watch closely and catch phishing right at the start but had an incident recently when, in a hurry, I clicked a link and started to answer the request for information before I got suspicious and stopped. Once I looked carefully at the situation I realized it was a phishing attempt. I immediately closed it and changed the password to my email and instituted a password to my email page. I think it worked but the info I gave before stopping may be out and make future phishes harder to detect. What should I have done?

    • Changing your passwords is always a good move after a phishing attempt. Hopefully you didn’t give away too much personal information – these details can make future phishing attempts easier, but by being vigilant going forward you can still curtail future phishing attempts. Watch out for files and links!
