"Phishing" is a technique used by hackers and cyber-criminals to direct users to fraudulent websites.

This section describes the nature of phishing scams, provides information on what your organization can to do avoid becoming a victim of these scams, outlines phishing prevention training for your employees, and discusses how to report phishing scams to law enforcement authorities.
