Phishing vs Spear Phishing –
What You Need to Know

Many people think spear phishing is just another term for phishing, but it’s a very different type of attack. Whereas phishers send emails in bulk to the masses, spear phishers send highly personalized messages to targeted people within an organization. These attacks often impersonate the CEO, CFO, or another trusted executive, and spear phishers engage in real human conversation to build trust. Once that trust is gained, criminals then trick victims into sending wire transfers, credit card data, or other sensitive information. The results can be devastating financially, and the damage to brands and reputations is often far worse. 

Think you can spot one of these attacks? 

Join us for this interactive webinar to learn more about spear phishing, how these attacks have evolved from traditional phishing, and three steps you can take to protect your employees, business, and brand from this growing threat. We’ll also provide a snapshot overview of Barracuda Sentinel, a new cloud service that utilizes artificial intelligence to stop spear phishing attacks in real time. We’ll conclude the session with open discussion and Q&A.
