South Africa Phishing Response Trends
Organisations in South Africa and around the world are moving aggressively to fight phishing attacks.
With the number of global phishing attacks at 1,220,523, a 65% increase over the previous year, it’s no wonder we find ourselves in an arms race against attackers.
So, are we winning the war or just holding ground?
The findings of this report suggest the latter. The following data on phishing and responses show that South African businesses are flooded with suspicious emails targeting employees but are ill-prepared to process and respond to those threats. In fact, most organisations feel they have little, if any, expertise in anti-phishing and many feel their incident response processes are weak.
