THE STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF 126,000 PHISHING SIMULATIONS CARRIED OUT IN 128 COMPANIES AROUND THE WORLD 1
Over 91% of system breaches have been caused by a phishing attack. Today, phishing attacks continue to be one of the most successful attack types initiated by email. This is especially true for spear phishing, an attack schemed against a certain individual, which has been popular in manipulating high-profile incidents. In this study, inidividual business departments were investigated and a risk percentage was determined according to emails opened, links clicked and forms submitted. Our study is significant in the sense that it will help companies in their cyber security and awareness efforts and guide their focus on the departments that are more vulnerable to social engineering attacks.
