Teaching Johnny not to fall for phish

Research focusing on educating users about phishing and identifying phishing emails, as opposed to using technology for prevention and detection. The research identified multiple problems, namely: that people were not motivated to learn about security; that security is seen as a secondary task; and that it’s difficult to teach people to identify threats without them also misidentifying non-threats. The authors conclude that education should be used in conjunction with automated detection systems to best stop losses.
