Cyber criminals are intelligent individuals. They are notorious for hoodwinking even the savviest of CEOs and bigwigs from high-end organisations and governments all around the world. Usually, these tricksters will lure you into clicking on a malicious link in an email. These links often look authentic and genuine, but once clicked, there’s no going back.
