Many of the experts quoted, including Dr. Grossman, advocate for ethical and responsible AI, starting at the design phase.
According to Ralph, phishing-protection suggestions from the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security include:
Never give away passwords to callers
Assume that if a prize is too good to be true, it probably isn’t
Be cautious about messages that require urgent action
