Play Hard to get With Strangers

Anne Bisagno


The 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that more than 90 percent of malware is distributed via email. Email remains a fairly well-known and popular exploit for cybercriminals because quite simply, it works.


Cybercriminals use phishing tactics, hoping to fool their victims. If you're unsure who an email is from - even if the details appear accurate - or if the email looks suspicious, do not respond and do not click on any links or attachments found in that email. When available, use the "junk" or "block" option to no longer receive messages from a particular sender.


For help with security training, including phishing education, that teaches your employees what to watch out for and helps them practice avoiding behaviors that put your data at risk, contact Xantrion.
