Analysis of an Anti-Phishing Lab Activity
Werner, Laurie A.; Courte, Jill
Information Systems Education Journal, v8 n11 Apr 2010
Despite advances in spam detection software, anti-spam laws, and increasingly sophisticated users, the number of successful phishing scams continues to grow. In addition to monetary losses attributable to phishing, there is also a loss of confidence that stifles use of online services. Using in-class activities in an introductory computer course is one way of familiarizing students with phishing and teaching them how to recognize a phishing email in order to avoid becoming victims. This paper analyzes one activity based on an online phishing IQ test.
