It’s a common misconception that the only threats to an enterprise’s security come from external actors. Whether intentional or not, 47% of organizational data breaches are the result of internal human error, such as a misplaced device or document. Moreover, some employees present an even larger risk than others. According to recent reports, younger employees are more likely to bypass security protocols that are viewed as an impediment to their productivity. When it comes to onboarding new employees, young or old, enterprises must have proper security awareness & anti-phishing training, in addition to a strong privileged access management solution, to guard against the different types of human error that could create security vulnerabilities.
Although email phishing has taken many forms throughout the years, the most common type of email scam is also the oldest. Since 2003, black-hat hackers have created domain names and web pages that look virtually identical to actual websites and have linked these copycat sites to vulnerable users via emails. It is increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a real web page and a fake one, especially for companies without sophisticated anti-phishing tools. For all companies, it's important to have the best anti-phishing solutions in place to ensure all data is protected and downtime is avoided.
Have you ever received an email that looks totally legitimate, links to a website that looks real, and asks for personal information? It is becoming harder and harder to know who and what can be trusted. Phishing is the practice of trying to get an unsuspecting email user to engage with an email in some way (opening, clicking, downloading an attachment, sending money, etc.).
