Law firms continue to be a major target for phishing scams – phony emails that try to trick users into revealing passwords or credit card info by appearing to be from a legit source like Microsoft, Gmail, or your bank. There’s even a Netflix phishing scam going around. While you may feel confident that you could easily spot these types of scams, it’s important to stay alert because phishing scams are becoming more sophisticated. Protect yourself and your firm by downloading software updates and patches, using antivirus tools on computers and mobile devices, and making sure all staff are trained to recognize phishing scams.
