It might be time to take phishing more seriously. Ninety-six percent of phishing attacks arrive by email, and they can function as catalysts for nerve-rattling cyber security incidents. The alarming statistics around phishing mean that you’ve likely had phishing emails land in your inbox.
Hopefully, you haven’t fallen victim to a phishing scam that has culminated in problematic outcomes. According to one recent survey, nearly 75% of IT professionals report that someone within their organization has accidentally clicked on a link, or downloaded a malicious file, unintentionally propagating a phishing attack.
Phishing can damage a business’s reputation, result in financial losses, dish out data to criminals, reduce employee productivity, incentivize intellectual property theft, and can result in financial penalties and loss of business value. In some cases, organizations may never fully recover.
