Self-paced, approximately 45-60 minutes to complete.  A certificate will be emailed to those who complete this course.

Phishing is a non-technical cyberattack used to gather sensitive information.  It is a growing problem for all organizations, including the University of Wyoming.  University accounts have been compromised, with data breaches leading to identity theft and other problems. We must work together to protect personal, student, financial, research, and other sensitive organizational information.  

This self-paced training takes a brief look at what phishing is, what it tries to accomplish, and how you can avoid it.  Much of the presentation examines real phishing samples, identifying tricks of the trade that will help you quickly recognize and avoid these attacks.
