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.
