Phishing and Counter-Measures discusses how and why phishing is a threat, and presents effective countermeasures. Educating readers on how phishing attacks have been mounting over the years, how to detect and prevent current as well as future attacks, this text focuses on corporations who supply the resources used by attackers. The authors subsequently deliberate on what action the government can take to respond to this situation and compares adequate versus inadequate countermeasures.
