Phishing is as prevalent a threat to businesses as it has ever been - if not more so right now during the pandemic.
CISA has issued a warning to US businesses about the increase in phishing and other social engineering scams over the course of the pandemic. CNN is reporting a 500% increase in phishing attacks since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Do you know how to keep your employees, and your organization as a whole, secure?
Register for Sophos’ upcoming webinar to learn all about the most prevalent phishing tactics of 2020, and how to protect against them:
In this webinar, Paul Lawrence, Senior Sales Engineer at Sophos, will explain the latest phishing tactics that cybercriminals are using to target organizations like yours.
Phishing is a method in which cybercriminals send fraudulent emails that appear to be from reputable sources in order to get recipients to reveal sensitive information and execute significant financial transfers.
If the cybercriminal can make you believe that they're your bank, your boss, or a close friend, then you're that much more likely to download malware, execute a financial transfer, or give up private information. That’s why your staff needs to know what to look for.
In the end, the key to phishing methodology is that it doesn't rely on digital security vulnerabilities or cutting-edge hacking technology; phishing targets the user, who, without the right training, will always be a security risk, regardless of the IT measures you have in place.
