Why phishing week 2022?

Phones, email and text messaging are instrumental in facilitating corporate interactions, organizational productivity, social progress, and economic gains. And all of the aforementioned channels are also vulnerable to cyber attacks that can thwart efforts to achieve macro-level objectives.

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, 81% of organizations have experienced an uptick in phishing threats. The pandemic isn’t over and neither are the phishing campaigns. Spear phishing emails -targeted phishing attacks- are used by more than 60% of known threat actors, leaving individuals at high-risk of accidentally catalyzing a breach.

In 2020, 97% of individuals were unable to recognize a sophisticated phishing email, and 95% of network security attacks occurred in conjunction with successful spear phishing threats. Many individuals who state that they are familiar with phishing-related best practices fall prey to scams anyway. We can do better.

Other benefits

How do you prevent known unknowns? By learning as much as possible about perceived threats and planning accordingly. Transform your known unknowns into known knowns.

Fight the phishers. The benefits of highly effective anti-phishing and anti-social engineering programs span beyond keeping hackers out. When you implement a comprehensive program, you’ll help ensure that internal emails consistently reach intended recipients, that your organization prevents financial losses, and that you’ll be able to grow your organization and your career.

Effective phishing prevention

Make it as difficult as possible for cyber attackers to reach your employees and your network. In addition to employee education, shield your organization from phishing attacks with email authentication protocols, threat alert platforms, and other modern tools and solutions.
