In recent years the number of phishing attacks has increased enormously, and according to some reliable sources this number even doubles every year. This of course results in more and more people being phished, but what do you actually have to do if (you think) you have become a victim of Phishing?
Type of Phishing
The exact steps you need to take will of course depend on the type of phishing attack. In concrete terms, this comes down to the question: “What did you have to do during the attack or what information did you release?
In general, there are a few steps you should take:
- Try to remain calm
- Inform your internal IT-department about the attack
- If the attack was a phishing email, you should report it as spam and send it to s u p p o r t @ p h i s h e d .be and [email protected]
- Have your computer, tablet or smartphone checked by your internal (or external) IT service
