Q1 2017 Phishing Trends & Intelligence Report

Posted by Stacy Shelley on Jun 8, '17

We all know that the only constant in life is change, but it is often surprising how quickly we must pivot and re-evaluate what we know to be true. In the words of General Shinseki, former U.S. Army Chief of Staff, “If you don’t like change, you’re going to like irrelevance even less.”  Q1 PTIR Graphic-4.png
 
What's most important is how we respond to the shifts, and, when talking about cyber security, how we continue to effectively manage risk in the midst of shifting threats. 
 
The first quarter of 2017 illustrates just how quickly the phishing threat landscape can change with a surge in attacks targeting payment services and 3x growth in attacks targeting SaaS and social networking sites.  In addition to shifting targets, phishing threat actors continue to adopt new techniques that make their attacks more convincing. 
 
The Q1 2017 Phishing Trends and Intelligence (PTI) Report is the first in an ongoing series of quarterly PTI Reports. As with annual PhishLabs PTI Reports, the Q1 2017 PTI Report provides insight into significant trends, tools, and techniques being used to carry out phishing attacks.
