Social engineering and phishing have become major concerns for businesses across the world. Among these, spear phishing attacks are becoming more difficult to identify and avoid. Attacks target unsuspecting users who end up revealing sensitive information to phishers, this information can be private data (credit card, login credentials or personal information) or corporate data (trade secrets business plans, sales forecasts). This can lead to significant financial losses, loss in customer trust and decline in shareholder value.
Spear phishing mails are tailored and well-crafted toward a targeted recipient and are devised by a mix of email spoofing tactics and dynamic URLs. To prevent falling prey to such mails it is important to have an action plan to enhance employee’s awareness on phishing attacks & reduce possible threats in the future.
