Were you aware that phishing could account for more than 90% of all successful cyber attacks. 90%. That’s nearly all of them. Again, just employees falling for emails.
All that this simple attack requires to be successful is for you to click on something that you shouldn’t have. Again, not saying that clicking is in any way your fault. But not saying that it’s not either.
But the good news is that the exact opposite is true too. All that’s required to defeat this clever trick, just email, mind you, to be victorious over these criminal masterminds, is for you to slow down, pause for a moment, and make the choice to not click.
