On behalf of the PhishLabs R.A.I.D., I'm proud to announce that the 2017 Phishing Trends & Intelligence Report has been released. As with last year's edition, the report provides first-hand, in-depth view of the events and trends that are shaping the phishing threat landscape. It provides insight into the major trends, tools, and techniques used by threat actors to carry out phishing attacks. It also provides the context and perspective needed to understand why these changes are happening.
By bagging a privileged user early on, attackers can move from entry point to mission accomplished in no time at all.
You’ve done it.
After months of nagging, security awareness training, and constant reminders, your employees have started reporting phishing emails. Take a moment to pat yourselves on the back, because this is no mean feat.
But… now what? What do you actually do with all these reported emails?
Today we published the 2016 Phishing Trends & Intelligence Report: Hacking the Human. We are proud that this report uniquely provides a first-hand, in-depth view of phishing directly from the continuous work PhishLabsTM does to fight back against phishing attacks and the threat actors behind them.
It was researched and written by our very own PhishLabs R.A.I.D.TM (Research, Analysis, and Intelligence Division), which is made up of some of the world’s most respected threat researchers. The information and analysis in this report came directly from our operations and the technology systems we use to fight back against phishing attacks. We analyzed more than one million confirmed malicious phishing sites in 2015, residing on more than 130,000 unique domains.
