How to Prevent Phishing and Spoofing
How to prevent phishing
The best way to phishing prevention is through education, vigilance and implementing phishing prevention best practices. Always treat any emails with spelling mistakes, grammar errors, links, or attachments with caution. Having a security officer in your workplace can help immensely with this. They’ll be able to continually update your office about the latest phishing scams, plus test your employees with fake phishing emails.
Installing a reputable antivirus program and anti-phishing toolbar can help as well.

How to prevent spoofing
Here are three ways you can stop spoofing from happening in your organization:
- Sender Policy Framework (SPF)
- DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)
- Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC)
Your IT department can implement all three so it’s more difficult for cybercriminals to spoof your email.
