It probably comes as no surprise that the second quarter of 2017 brought changes in the phishing landscape. A dramatic increase (41%) in overall phishing volume was observed by the PhishLabs research team. Additionally, there have been shifts in the industries that are being targeted. This is further evidence that the threat landscape is both thriving and volatile as cybercriminals pivot and exploit different targets.
After years of gathering and analyzing phishing data, only one thing is certain - phishing continues to be a successful attack method for cybercriminals.
