“A company can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on firewalls, intrusion detection systems and encryption and other security technologies, but if an attacker can call one trusted person within the company, and that person complies, and if the attacker gets in, then all that money spent on technology is essentially wasted.” ~ Kevin Mitnick

Avoiding to download a suspicious attachment or to click on a fake link is a first step not to fall pray of cyber criminals. The easiest way to avoid falling for scams and other social engineering attacks is to have an understanding of the tactics employed by attackers. Have a look at this infographics and find out the most common red flags – you have to check in an email. Any email. Even if they seems legitimate. Even if they (apparently) come from your colleague, your friend, your spouse….or your CEO!
These results clearly show the sequence of:
Employees get the understanding that each email could be a phishing attack and they need to STOP, LOOK and THINK for a second or two before they click on any link in an email or open an attachment. The monthly PSTs make sure that this behavioral change which was started by the training, actually gets reinforced and applied in their day-to-day office life.
Over 90% of successful data breaches start from a phishing attack. Contact us to know more about!
