Phishing is a method in which cybercriminals send fraudulent emails that appear to be from reputable sources in order to get recipients to reveal sensitive information and execute significant financial transfers.
The key to phishing’s effectivity is how unsuspecting the target is. The fact is that businesses aren’t learning to protect themselves, which makes them easy targets. Is your IT security company protecting you from phishing attempts?
Phishing succeeds when a cybercriminal uses fraudulent emails or texts, and counterfeit websites to get you to share your personal or business information like your login passwords, Social Security Number or account numbers. They do this to rob you of your identity and steal your money.
