Don't Be A Sucker "Phishing Awareness"


Over 20 years ago, cybercriminals selected victims at random, sending phishing campaigns to many recipients. To improve their success rate, cybercriminals today research their targets and find out the brands that victims are related to , including banks, software and app vendors, e-commerce companies, and more.


Cybercriminals today are sophisticated, the times of sloppy, phishing emails are gone. They are sly, and highly skilled at concealing their attacks from users and email filters. They select their victims carefully and conduct extensive research before launching attacks. Security awareness training is highly recommended but as users get busy, they are bound to let their guards down. Your business at risk for a breach, when this does happen.


Cybercriminals use a number of techniques to mimic the look and feel of an email from a known brand, including using legitimate brand logos, images, and call-to-action buttons.


Train your employees to contact your IT department immediately so that IT can take appropriate action and create a feedback loop to help improve the email filter. Jec Technologies Group can assist with an eBook and an infographic for you to download.
