There’s no doubt that general awareness for cybersecurity has been on the rise in recent years. The importance of using strong passwords, for example, is now common knowledge. But one very popular and effective threat continues to fly largely under the public’s radar: phishing.
Why phishing? Researchers found that 30% of phishing messages are opened according to the 2016 Cisco Annual Security Report and adversaries know how effective a phishing campaign can be. To give you an idea of the scope of the problem, www.phishing.org reports that over 100 billion phishing e-mails cross the internet each day. They also report that about two thirds of all attacks start with a phishing campaign.
