Phishing through a Pandemic

That title sounds terrible and makes me sound like I am a cyber criminal exploiting the current pandemic to make money etc. But it is not like that all. I have just finished my Masters and my dissertation was all about how useful (or otherwise) it was to have Phishing awareness training as a means of protecting users from phishing.

I wont spoil the end by telling you what my conclusion was but it was interesting to see just how easy it was to get people to fall for a phishing email. There is a lot of research out there on Phishing and I would share some of it but my dissertation is yet to be marked and I don’t want to get any publishing/copyright mess going on.

Anyway I am hoping I can publish it at some stage, or use it for the basis of further work.
