Counter the Increase in Phishing Attacks and Sophistication with Snared
Apr 23, 2020
In 2019, more than 90% of organizations experienced a targeted phishing attack. Leveraging information that is widely available on social media and other public outlets, campaigns are crafted using current events and key information gleaned about your business to trick users into clicking malicious links or downloading malware to gain a foothold in your environment.
While some phishing messages are obvious in their intent, others are very authentic-looking and require training and practice to identify. These messages will contain attributes that give them an authentic look with content that often links to fraudulent websites which are near-exact replicas of the originals. These replicas are designed to trick users into entering usernames and passwords in order to compromise email, financial, logistics and other sensitive accounts.
To counter this, a multi-effort approach to information security is needed. Automated tools are the first: modern spam and malware filters for inbound email, a next-generation firewall with intelligent content filters, quality end-point protection and an effective user awareness and testing program that leverages the same techniques as phishing campaigns that are active in the wild.
