Organisational information security policies generally include education, training and testing employees to help protect the organisation against attacks (phishing, mishing and other social engineering) from cybercriminals.
The threat landscape particularly in todays online/ digital world is very complex and every employee must take some responsibility to ensure e-mail security. Just one mistake by an employee or clicking on a link, opening a PDF, could result in a data breach, loss of data, fines and huge legal costs, and most important of all damage to the company’s image and reputation.
Humans by nature are curious, naive, gullible or vulnerable and hackers and cyber criminals take advantage of that and use Phishing as a common form of attack by e-mail. This is particularly significant and dangerous because attackers know how humans behave and they rely and in key instances can count on certain people to accept e-mails that will result in credentials been stolen or passwords being shared etc. Phishing emails typically contain a link or attachment that can install some sort of malware, trojan or contains a link to a website that entices users into entering details or credentials that can later be used for identity or data theft, to sell on the black market to other hackers or to hold users/organisations to ransom.
