How to Handle Phishing Threats that Bypass Security Technology
In 2018 there were more than 1,244 reported data breaches reported, and personally identifiable information (PII) significantly increased from 197.6 million to 446.5 million – a 126% jump. Of these breaches, a majority of them are attributed to phishing attacks. The reasoning for this is simple, email security technology still can’t fully detect social engineering attacks and as a result, threats still land in user inboxes.
Today, phishing is about so much more than email-based credential theft. It’s any form of social engineering that uses a digital channel. And, as threat actors increase the scope of their operations, businesses scramble to protect users from an increasingly wide array of phishing threats, much of which technology alone can’t detect.
