Credential phishing attacks represent a huge threat to organizations as a well-crafted (or even somewhat realistic-looking) phishing email can trick an employee into providing login credentials.

In our threat report covering data from January-June 2022, Abnormal Security found a 48% increase in email attacks over the previous six months, and 68.5% of those attacks included a credential phishing link. Cybercriminals posed as well-known brands in 15% of phishing attacks, with social networks and Microsoft products being the most frequently impersonated.
