The cybersecurity headlines in the past few weeks have been dominated by sophisticated nation-state espionage campaigns. But while these incidents raise some important questions about supply chain security in a global economy, I had my eyes on another story — one highlighting the threat facing organisations from phishing and account takeover. It’s a story many of you will have heard before, but that makes it no less important — especially as awareness levels continue to lag.
The good news is that there’s plenty you can do to protect your most prized assets by stopping the phishers in their tracks. Artificial intelligence-powered technologies are here today and already making an impact, alongside more traditional steps like improved staff training.'Most hackers are looking for the quickest and cheapest ROI possible from their attacks. That’s what makes phishing such a great strategy. ' ~@philmuncaster Click To Tweet
