The mobile security landscape is constantly evolving. With more reliance than ever on mobile devices for both personal and business use, the entire world is looking at mobile accessibility as the vehicle to higher connectivity and better productivity. Malicious actors have taken note of how reliant we are on mobile devices. From their perspective, mobile phishing is often the cheapest way to compromise an individual or an organization.
Across all geographies and industries, there is a steady increase in the rate of both consumer and corporate users encountering mobile phishing attacks. The financial risk of falling victim to a phishing attack can be devastating to an organization. For a large multinational company, they could be looking at hundreds of millions of dollars in losses from a successful phishing attack. Even for smaller organizations, like a regional healthcare system, the risk still falls in the tens of millions of dollars.
Mobile phishing is a problem that can no longer be ignored, no matter what part of the world or industry an organization operates in.
