What is the BEST approach to mitigate the risk of a phishing attack?
implement an intrusion detection system (IDS)
Assess web site security
Phishing attacks can be mounted in various ways; intrusion detection systems (IDSs) and strong
authentication cannot mitigate most types of phishing attacks. Assessing web site security does
not mitigate the risk. Phishing uses a server masqueradingas a legitimate server. The best way to
mitigate the risk of phishing is to educate users to take caution with suspicious internet
communications and not to trust them until verified. Users require adequate training to recognize
suspicious web pagesand e-mail.
