How to Mitigate Socially-Engineered Attacks
Social engineering is the foundation of today’s email threat landscape, and a tactic the bad guys have been using even before the advent of computers. Employees simply want to be helpful, and all humans have a tendency to trust others. Taking these two things into consideration, it’s easy for attackers to trick someone into trusting them.
In a recent interview with Tom Field of Information Security Media Group, I discussed the most common socially-engineered attacks and why these tactics are still so successful—despite a growing awareness from employees. I also shared a few key steps organizations can take to defend against advanced email attacks.
And you don’t have to take my word for it. The most recent FBI IC3 report shows a 28% increase in business email compromise—costing organizations nearly $2.4 billion in 2021 alone. Unfortunately, if past experience tells us anything, the threat is only going to rise.
