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.

Masters Modules

So I got my grades for my second module of my masters over the weekend and was pleased with the grade but a little frustrated with the lack of feedback.  So on some elements I obviously did very well and others I was down at 60% and 65% but with no explanation of what areas I could have covered that would have got me those marks or areas I should have considered.

I am assuming that is it based on a grade for applying a more critical analysis of my answers but I really do not know.
