Phishing – in the broadest sense, phishing is any attempt to persuade someone to interact with an unsafe email. Phishing emails are used to trick recipients into opening unsafe attachments, clicking unsafe URLs, handing over account credentials or sensitive information, transferring money, and more. Email Fraud – these attacks can consist of an email, or series of emails, purporting to come from a senior person in your organisation asking the recipient to transfer money or send sensitive information. It does not use malicious attachments or URLs, so it can be hard to detect and stop.
Technology alone isn’t enough
Cyber Security solutions in the main look to secure organisations using technology. In addition, those technologies are too often designed to only detect threats which originate from outside the organisation. We now know that technology alone isn’t enough – employee awareness about cyber security and the threats they are susceptible to are critical to successful cyber security. New tools can help you understand which of your users are demonstrating risky behaviours and need help, as well as those looking to deliberately damage your organisation. Malicious insiders could be an employee or user that has criminal intent to defraud or maliciously damage your organisation. Research by the Ponemon Institute found that 23 percent of incidents involved an insider.
