Quarterly Threat Trends & Intelligence Report
Agari and PhishLabs analyzed hundreds of thousands of phishing and social media attacks targeting enterprises, their employees, and brands. This report uses the data from those attacks to present key trends shaping the threat landscape.
Security leaders and practitioners can use this information to better understand these threats and to take proactive measures to reduce risk.
Threat actors are actively abusing unconventional attack methods and online channels to maximize the effectiveness of campaigns. While email phishing remains the most dominant threat type, these modified tactics and external environments supplement traditional means of deception.
Response-Based email scams such as 419, BEC, and Vishing continue to climb, with the threat group reaching its highest recorded volume since 2020. While all three threat types grew in incident count, hybrid Vishing attacks initiated via email reached a six-quarter high, increasing 625% from Q1 2021. Hybrid Vishing attacks are one example where bad actors have modified traditional tactics to evade security controls and fool victims.
