Phishing and Spear Phishing Explained

This video explains the common form of phishing simply called phishing.  It then goes on to differentiate a more sophisticated, targeted and well-researched attack on businesses known as a Spear-Phishing attacks.  This is where a target is researched through the online and social media presence to craft a phishing attack that is likely to be of some interest to the individual targeted.  For example, an avid cyclist will be targeted with a cyclist focused phishing attack.
