A Resolute Exercise to Deal with the Spear Phishing Rogues
It takes a lot of effort and dedication to build a business and if you do not heed to employ adequate security
measures you will not get an opportunity to salvage your operations. This is what happens during phishing attacks.
Often these attacks are subtle like an ordinary mail with links or attachments which hardly give you any warnings
regarding the extent of damage that it will cause. By the time you realize how much damage has been done it is
too late.
The phishing attacks focus on people exposing their vulnerabilities and making them hapless victims. These mails
look like they have been sent by your banks or financial consultants. Due to your eagerness to check the contents
you inadvertently or knowingly click on the links and attachments provided with the mail. This takes you to a fake
website which resembles the genuine website and if you are not alert to recognize their actual intentions you end
up sharing your confidential data with complete strangers.
A small human folly can cost your business dearly. If you do not have reliable and stringent security measures it is
time to wake up and make some constructive decision to save your business from unnecessary damages and costs.
It is important to educate your employees regarding the various online threats especially phishing. They should
have the knowledge and skill to identify these attacks and stop them before it makes the enterprise totally invalid.
Enterprise spear phishing is becoming a distressing threat to customers associated with banks, financial providers
and even social networking sites.
You need to deploy the anti-phishing software that ensures that each and every employee in your business is
proficiently trained to address the phishing attacks effectively. This software launches a mock phishing attack on
the employees to check their alertness and what measures they employ to mitigate their effects. The software
monitors and tracks the employees' actions for an analytical study and sends personalized emails to individual
employees. These mails help to determine how many employees fall in the phishing fall rate category and how
many fall in the phishing fail rate category.
The anti-phishing software provides reports which help you to assess the awareness level existent in your business.
This gives you an idea on what strategies to deploy that will provide you maximum protection against phishing. A
proactive approach in matters of security is necessary to keep your business safe from additional costs that you
may have to incur after the phishing attacks. You cannot afford the loss of your business' reputation nor a dip in
your revenues. Thus it is advisable to be well-prepared rather than be fatally wounded.
