Google’s Jigsaw unit has published a quiz that tests users’ abilities to identify phishing emails. The quiz tests you on a series of example emails to see if you can distinguish the telltale signs of phishing.
Phishing is one of the most common form’s of cyberattack. One percent of emails sent today are phishing attempts. And it often represents a more serious threat than the nuisance offers for free money we’ve all seen in our inboxes.
They created this quiz based on the security trainings they held with nearly 10,000 journalists, activists, and political leaders around the world from Ukraine to Syria to Ecuador. They have studied the latest techniques attackers use, and designed the quiz to teach people how to spot them.
