The human factor in phishing

We discuss the importance of understanding psychological aspects of phishing, and review some recent findings. Given these findings, we critique some commonly used security practices and suggest and review alternatives, including educational approaches. We suggest a few techniques that can be used to assess and remedy threats remotely, without requiring any user involvement. We conclude by discussing some approaches to anticipate the next wave of threats, based both on psychological and technical insights.
