The average office worker sends and receives around 121 emails every day. That sounds like a lot, and you may be shocked to learn that 3 billion phishing emails are sent each day. They account for 1% of all email traffic. A phishing email is an email sent by cyber criminals that pretends to be from a trusted source, such as your bank, Amazon, Takealot, a delivery company etc.

They’re trying to get you to click on a bad link. Maybe so they can install malware (malicious software) on your computer. Or to fool you into trying to log into a fake website; inadvertently giving away your login details.  The likelihood is that your team will each receive several phishing emails every week. It’s important they know the warning signs to look out for. Please see our video below for more.
