S02E04: Email Phishing Scams

Season 2: How to Be a Cyber Criminal

Not all cybercriminals are evil. Some send phishing emails to their coworkers for their own good. We’re talking about simulated phishing emails for education.

In this episode, we interview Jason Riegner, Jr Front End Developer at Proofpoint about the Microsoft TEAMS phish he designed, which most of us fell for.

What we talked about:

  • How to identify a phishing email
  • What to do & especially what not to do when you get one
  • The nuanced design of phishing emails, from intricate to innocuous
  • We had a contest! Who wins our respect?
