How do I secure my endpoints against Phishing threats?
Cyber Protection Products
With over 90% of cyber-attacks starting with a phishing email, combating phishing with only email security can be challenging. These types of cyberattacks aim to steal your information, such as login credentials, credit card numbers and bank details. This attack is also a starting point to other severe threats like ransomware. Hackers use social engineering techniques to lure you into clicking links or opening attachments and infiltrate your business systems.
Spear phishing is a type of phishing that targets specific individuals or organisations instead of a wide range of people. Attackers research their victims’ information and behaviour on social media and other sites to learn about their victims. Therefore, communications to the victims are customised and appear to be genuine.
What can you do to protect yourself from phishing attacks?
- Be wary of emails before rushing to click on links or attachments
- Beware of emails that need your immediate attention like urgent or do it now
- Do not click on enticing offers that are too good to be true
- Validate URL links before clicking on them by hovering over the link in the email itself
- Often found in phishing threats are misspelling and grammar mistakes
- Disregard and do not click on fake invoices that may seem real in emails messages
- Do not respond to requests that ask you to reset your password. Speak to your trusted IT team, if unsure.
