Phishing attacks are a form of social engineering, in which a cyber-criminal sends a malicious message designed to trick users into performing an action, such as revealing personal information, a password, or making a payment.
Over 75% of organizations around the world faced a phishing attack last year and 96% of phishing attacks are delivered via email. Attackers impersonate trusted contacts and brands and target users, encouraging them, and can be highly convincing; the average cost of a data breach caused by phishing is $3.92m USD, and 52% of organisations affected by phishing have credentials or accounts compromised. This can lead to financial loss, and damage your brand reputation.
