The Dangers of Business Phishing Scams

Phishing is a type of security attack in which the perpetrator attempts to obtain confidential information by impersonating a trustworthy entity in a digital communication, usually an email. In other words, the attacker sends an email to an employee trying to get the employee to share usernames, passwords, payment information and other sensitive data.

In many cases, this is done by including a malicious link in the email. That link may appear to be a software or service used by your company. However, it is actually a fake website created by the attacker. The fake site may even forward the victim to the real website, making it hard to notice the attack.

Some attackers use spear-phishing for even more dangerous attacks. These are emails designed to trick specific individuals using personalized research on another specific person.


Facts About Phishing

  • 23% of recipients open phishing messages and 11% open the attachments.
  • In 2016, one out of every 131 emails contained malware.
  • More than half of all organizations think they would be unlikely to detect a sophisticated phishing attack.
  • Around a third of businesses do not have a defined plan for responding to a breach or cyberattack.

Anti-Phishing Solutions for Businesses

Protecting your business from phishing attacks requires a thoughtful plan centered on team member education. These are some of the ways that iuvo Technologies can help you:

    • Phishing Consultation: We will analyze your current situation to determine your vulnerability. We will then make recommendations that fit your needs. This may include testing, education and technology to defend your business.
    • Employee Phishing Education: Education is one of the most important anti phishing solutions for businesses. By teaching people about phishing and how to prevent it, we can help them avoid falling for these traps.
    • “White Hat” Attacks: To test the efficacy of our employee phishing education, we will also perform some “white hat” phishing attacks. These are benign phishing emails, sent by us, that use the same strategies as cyber attackers. We analyze where there are issues or clicks that should not have occurred and could have put you at risk should this have been a real attack. This is a great way to learn about your team’s preparedness and to create open discussions about where there are opportunities to make the process better.
    • Analytics: Finally, we will analyze your team’s performance and responsiveness. This will help us to provide more targeted education and solutions.
