How To Spot Phishing Messages

Phishing scams are one of the biggest threats to businesses. A 2020 study shows phishing scams increased more than 600% as cybercriminals took advantage of the pandemic, rapid increase in remote work, limited resources available to communities, and the added stress over the last year and a half.

Damage related to cybercrime, including phishing-related threats like ransomware and business email compromise, is projected to hit $6 trillion annually in 2021, as a new cyberattack is launched every 39 seconds.

One of the best investments that you can make to protect your business from today’s worst cyberattack threats is security awareness training. We’re making that easier than ever by offering our on-demand cyber threats webinar, featuring tips on how to spot phishing scams, why cyber insurance is a non-negotiable resource, and what to expect after a data breach.
