More than 90% of successful hacks and data breaches start with phishing scams. Phishing is a threat to every organization across the globe. That’s why it’s important to get the information you need to prevent attacks.
Phishing attacks are meant to look legitimate, with the intention of deceiving to obtain private information, or to plant malicious software into your network. Often via email, criminals send messages featuring poor grammar and misspellings, urgent language, and suspicious links or attachments. The sender relies on the reader quickly overlooking these red flags to ensure the success of their attack.
Preventing cyber claims begins with employee training. An overwhelming number of claims start as phishing attacks, evolving into business email compromise, wire transfer fraud and ransomware. If you receive a suspicious email, follow your organization’s procedures, alert your IT department and delete the message from both your inbox and deleted folder.
