|Supplier & Customer Information:
Dear customers and business partners,
today we would like to inform you about a current threat affecting the online security environment. Recently, we have received an increasing number of reports of phishing mails being sent with fraudulent intent.
As a responsible company, we care about your security, so we would like to share with you some important information on how to recognise and protect yourself from phishing emails.
1. Check the sender: Always check the sender of the email. Phishing emails often use fake email addresses that resemble those of trusted companies. Be especially careful if the sender immediately asks for personal data or financial information.
2. links and attachments: never click on links or open attachments in suspicious emails. These may contain malicious code that puts your computer or personal information at risk. If in doubt, visit the company's official website instead of clicking on the link in the email.
3. personal information: Reputable companies will never ask you for sensitive personal information such as passwords, national insurance numbers or credit card details in an email. Never enter this information in an email, even if it appears to be from a trustworthy company.
4. check the email address: You can often spot phishing emails by checking the actual email address of the sender. Sometimes this address is slightly modified or contains typos. Compare the email address with the official address of the company to detect discrepancies.
