APWG Phishing Education Landing Page

The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) and Carnegie Mellon CyLab is asking that instead of disabling phishing sites you redirect the users to their Phishing Education Landing Page. I think this is a great way to educate your users about phishing. The more they know how phishing works the better they can protect themselves.

Here's how the program works: when a phishing site is shut down by officials (e.g. ISP, registrar, Web hosting company), we ask if the official would redirect the URL of the phishing site to an education landing page.

For more information about this program see http://education.apwg.org/r/how_to.html
