According to the United Kingdom Government, in 2020-2021, four in ten businesses reported having cyber security breaches in that time period and the most common cyber attack by far is Phishing, which makes up 83% of all the attacks.
Phishing is a type of a Social engineering attack that is carried out through fake emails or texts and usually contains a link that once opened can download malware onto the device. Once the phishing attack has taken place, the victim’s email account can be used to send more emails to colleagues and friends, disguising the fraudulent emails as an email from the victim. Attackers can also delete incoming emails, so the victim cannot receive any emails, missing vital information and being unable to know the account has been compromised.
In a corporate environment Phishing emails can cause catastrophic effects. In most cases a phishing email would be sent around a business and if any of the employees who receive the email click on any malicious content then the attacker can access the employees work account and attempt to gain access to intellectual property or cause damage to the businesses operations.
Without having proper security in place then phishing attacks can be destructive to a business. Our UK based 24×7 Security Operations Centre can keep your organisation secure all year round.
