What is Phishing?

Phishing is a cybercrime that is increasing across the globe. Phishing itself is where a target or targets are contacted by email, telephone or text message by someone posing as a legitimate institution to lure individuals into providing sensitive data such as personally identifiable information. This normally includes banking details, credit cards, passwords, access to other sensitive data (databases of addresses etc) and even sometimes urgent requests for payments and services.
