WHY SECURITY AWARENESS SHOULD NOT STOP AT PHISHING
If you’re keeping even half an eye on the InfoSec news cycle, you know how big of a problem phishing is. The annual Verizon data breach found again this year that phishing was the leading way for malware to enter networks, with the average company reporting that 94% of detected malware came in via email. Thirty-two percent of confirmed breaches started with phishing, again the most common tactic. It makes sense, then, that so much security awareness content out there is focused on this threat. Some vendors make their business on it almost completely, with this trend extending to the phishing simulator emerging as a key selling point for those in the security awareness business.
