2018 Phishing Trends Report
Phishing continues to be the top threat vector for cyber attacks, that is to say, over 91% of system breaches have been caused by a phishing attack today. Exploiting human vulnerabilities continues to be the most successful path for threat actors targeting the assets of organisations and individuals. As the adoption of technology gains momentum, we see threat actors progressively shifting methods and leveraging social engineering through email, social media, and mobile attacks to trick users. Especially spear phishing, an attack aimed against a certain individual, has been popular in manipulating high-profile incidents.
