Save

Phishing is an attempt by criminals to gain access to sensitive data by pretending that they are authorized to do so. Examples of phishing include a fake email sent by a bank asking you to confirm your details. This is one of the biggest causes of identity theft and fraud in the world. However, as the phishers get more sophisticated, so does the technology which is used to combat it. Google, for instance, now offers solutions to potential phishing.

  • Install Google Chrome on your computer by logging on to "www.google.com/chrome" and following the download instructions.

  • Use Google Chrome for browsing on the Internet. If you operate a network, then ensure that it becomes the default browser. Make sure your colleagues use Chrome for all surfing, particularly non-office-related surfing.

  • Act upon Google's "Safe Browsing Alerts", forwarding them on to your colleagues, if necessary. Google launched the Safe Browsing Alerts for Network Administrators program as a tool that lets administrators running their own networks to receive e-mail notifications pointing out bad URLs, if Google's automated scanners find malicious content."

  • Block any troublesome websites from your staff, although Google will almost certainly have acted before you do in removing the site.
