Don't take the bait

Published February 2018

In the last year, phishing attacks have seen a meteoric rise as attackers continue to refine tactics and share successful types of attacks.

In this paper, we’ll dive into the evolution of phishing in recent years, how it works, and what it looks like. And as cybercriminals continue to prey on employees through their technology, we’ll make an argument for the importance of a multi-layered defense against phishing attacks: combining advanced security technologies with educated, phishing-aware employees.
