Minimize the Threat of Phishing Attacks.
Phishing attacks are probably the most common threats to your business. A very popular method to steal employee credentials, phishing has not only grown in number but in sophistication as well. It is estimated that phishing increased by 42% in 2020, over 2019 and continues to grow on a daily basis. While a trained eye can usually spot a phishing attempt and discard it immediately, even the most security savvy employee can fall prey to a highly targeted and sophisticated phishing email. How quickly your overall security program responds to the click of a link in order contain the damage is what will determine whether it’s just another security incident, or a data breach.
Something Seems Phishy.
Training your employees to recognize phishing attempts is an effective defense. There are several indicators that an email or text message is less than legit, such as an unusual sender, strange misspellings, hyperlinks/attachments, and an offer that’s too good to be true. For instance, the CEO of “netflicks” is not going to email you with a million dollar prize notification.
