Phishing


The facts and costs of phishing

 

The Cost of Phishing

A significant risk for Businesses

The human element is often the weakest component in a company’s security, and attackers exploit this fact. Phishing attacks are on the rise and more sophisticated than ever.

The average cost of a phishing attack for a mid-sized company is $1.6 million.

The Human Firewall

Defend against changing threats

Having layered levels of defense is critical to an effective information security program. Blacklisting a site or IP address is ineffective to defending against phishing attacks. Employees are a key part of a security strategy.

Testing & Training

Improve Employees’ Security Awareness

Testing and training are needed to improve your human firewall. A great way to improve your resilience against phishing attacks is to test and train your employees with this threat vector.
