How to Respond Phishing Attacks
Understanding the Problem
It’s natural for all organisations to experience phishing attacks and indeed, it is a matter of time. On average, it takes organisation about 197 days to identify and 69 days to contain a breach. Organisations contain a breach in less than 30 days save more than $1 million in comparison to those contain a breach longer. These are critical incidents that organisations have to respond to rapidly, before significant damage occurs.
