According to new research, 75% of executives cited phishing as the most significant security threat to businesses. In the mobile-first, cloud-first and perimeter-less world, phishing attacks have become increasingly harder to protect against as attackers have moved beyond targeting just email. Taking advantage of the BYOD corporate mobile environment, attackers now target messaging apps, social media apps and SMS. In fact, according to the 2019 Verizon Mobile Security Index, “85% of phishing attacks seen on mobile devices take place outside of email. While many organizations have filtering in place to block email-based attacks, far fewer have similar protection in place for these other routes.”
In order for enterprises to protect their users and corporate data from modern phishing attacks, they must first understand how phishing attacks work.
