Built To Block Phishing Attacks

hackers are targeting your organization right now

Cyberattacks can happen with just one click – but so can preventing them.

Hackers are constantly working to compromise your systems – and phishing attacks are one of their go-to ways to trick users into revealing personal and/or sensitive information. Approximately 15 billion spam emails are sent every day, making up nearly 50% of all emails.

Phishing is a widespread threat that relies on social engineering to gain access to private and corporate assets, with roughly 1 out of every 99 emails being a phishing attack. On average, 20% of an organization’s data is accessible to all employees and as cyber criminals look for the weakest link in an organization, they may just find it in a user or device via a phishing email.

Example of a phishing attack

According to phishing.org, tech support scams like the example below are often used by cybercriminals to trick unsuspecting users.

Keep your organization protected

To stay protected, review these simple tips from the Department of Homeland Security:

  • When in doubt, throw it out! If an email looks suspicious, it’s best to delete it. Contact the company directly via phone to confirm authenticity.
  • Think before you click. Be wary of communications that urge users to act quickly or offer something that sounds too good to be true.
  • Use stronger authentication. Opt for stronger authentication, such as multi-factor authentication, whenever possible.
  • Make passwords long and strong. Create a unique, secure password by combining capital and lowercase letters with numbers and symbols.
