Healthcare professionals with direct or indirect access to protected health information are popular hacker targets. Protected health information is high-value data, and breaches from phishing attacks can lead to major fines. This module will define phishing, how to distinguish phishing from normal communications, and when and how to report phishing attacks.
Phishing occurs when hackers use electronic messages (often email) to entice unsuspecting users to share personal information like passwords and credit card information. Our interactive phishing training outlines where phishing messages may appear, how to distinguish phishing from normal communications, and when and how to report phishing attacks.
The most dangerous type of phishing is known as "Spear Phishing." A spear phisher will craft messages to target individuals or small groups. These emails may appear to come from business associates, or even the CEO.
One in 131 emails are malicious, the highest rate in five years. Hackers use email as the primary approach for phishing.
