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.

I'm very excited to announce that we've launched a new, comprehensive service for community banks and credit unions that goes beyond internal anti-fraud controls to stop account takeover. It's called ATO|Prevent, and we developed it because it's plainly evident that these defensive controls no longer pose a major barrier to cybercriminals seeking to takeover online banking accounts and carry out fraud.
In fact, we believe that just playing defense against these attacks is a losing battle. The simple truth is that you aren't going to win many fights if you don't fight back. That's why we created ATO|Prevent -- to proactively fight on the behalf of banks and credit unions against the attacks that lead to account takeover fraud.
