This month’s security awareness newsletter from SANS Institute focuses on phone call attacks and scams, known as vishing.

Cyber criminals are using the phone more and more often to call and trick their victims. There are two big advantages to using a phone: Unlike other cyber attacks, there are few security technologies that can detect and stop a phone call attack; also, it is much easier for criminals to convey emotion and build trust over the phone, which makes it easier to trick their victims. Led by Guest Editor Jen Fox, learn how to spot and stop these attacks. Download and share OUCH! with family, friends and co-workers, and as always translated into over 20 languages.
