Preventing Phishing in Atlanta and Beyond

Internet pirates have switched to sophisticated ways to steal digital data – manipulation of human psychology. This attempt to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data using social engineering is known as phishing. On the one hand, the world is fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, and on the other, enterprises in Atlanta and other cities around the world are locking horns with destructive phishing attacks.

According to a 2020 Quarter 1 report by Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG), COVID-19 has worsened the situation as cybercriminals are using the panic to launch Business E-mail Compromise (BEC) attacks, a type of phishing. In such uncertain times, the best way to fight phishing attacks is to strengthen the weakest link in the security chain, your staff, by providing the right security awareness training.

It only takes one wrong click to cripple your organization’s security system and expose its confidential data. Being a vulnerable phishing business in Atlanta, you need the best security solution for all kinds of phishing attacks – Email Phishing, Vishing, SMiShing, and USB Baiting.
