Cybercriminals have become very sophisticated on how to scam people.
• 23% of recipients now open phishing messages and 11% click on attachments.
• 50% open e-mails and click on phishing links within the first hour.
• 75% of data breaches are a result of an end-user downloading malware and falling for phishing or social media scams.
One of the most effective ways you can minimize the phishing threat is through awareness and training.
