The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) strives for a safer, stronger Internet for all Americans by responding to major incidents, analyzing threats, and exchanging critical cyber security information with trusted global partners. The organization’s Security Tip named “Avoiding Phishing Attacks” explains how to avoid being a victim and what to do if you become a victim.
