There are numerous ways a cybercriminal may infiltrate a company. One of the top ways to breach data is through phishing. What is phishing? Essentially, it’s when a malicious attachment or link to a spoof site is sent in an email. These emails have become quite sophisticated in their design to fool the employee into downloading malicious software or handing over sensitive information, such as log-in details. The criminal then uses the access gained to deliver a malware infection or otherwise infiltrate the system. Such attacks have become successful of late in part due to the changes in working situations and lack of operational preparedness during the transition.
