Rise in Phishing Attacks
It has come to our attention that many of our customers have seen an increased number of phishing campaigns over the last few weeks and it has become clear that there is some concern regarding the best way to deal with these emails.
As an IT organisation ourselves, we know for a fact that security issues come in many different forms and it just so happens to be the case that phishing has the potential to be a very devastating variation of a cyber-attack.
In the opening months of 2021, extremely convincing phishing campaigns have been catching vulnerable business off guard so we thought it would be prudent to provide some insight and practical advice when it comes to spotting and overcoming these manipulative messages.
Learn more by viewing out 6 Top Tips to Avoid Phishing Attacks blog here.

Protection against the waves of Phishing attacks
Did you know that, according to the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigation, a whopping 94% of malware is delivered by email to unsuspecting users? With the increase in the proportion of the nation that are working from home, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure that your employees can identify the differences between a legitimate email and fake one. In 2019, the ICO stated that 60% of ICO-reported data breaches were down solely down to human error. With remote working now at the forefront of how businesses are functioning, users are less likely to be able to depend on colleagues to fact check the legitimacy of the emails they receive.
By educating your employees about phishing, you are significantly reducing the risk each member of staff brings to your organization. You can view our infographic from our friends at PurplePhish on how security training reduces risks by clicking here.
