Last week we published the 2018 Phishing Trends and Intelligence report and presented on the topic during a webinar, and the primary key finding highlighted why enterprise organizations are now the primary target over consumers. The following is a high level look at what our Director of Threat Intelligence, Crane Hassold, discussed during the webinar.
Have you ever wondered what happens after a phish gets reported? Does it simply fall into a blackhole? That’s what PhishLabs set out to answer during this month’s webinar.
As you are likely aware, 95 percent of data breaches, an event that occurs on a daily basis, are the direct result of phishing attacks. For as old as phishing is, it continues to be a cyber security threat because it continues to be effective and technology alone can’t combat email attacks. This is not to mention the rise in other phishing attempts through the likes of social media, messengers, and even gaming systems.
