Phishing remains a growing problem and a persistent threat. The total number of phishing attacks in 2012 was 59% higher than 2011 and global losses to phishing were estimated to be $1.5B in 2012*. Current solutions, such as education and training of end users, web filtering, two factor authentication, phishing takedown services, are proving ineffective in an environment where:
- Over 100 billion spam emails are sent each day.
- Half of Internet users get at least 1 phishing email per day.
- Criminal Success rates remain at 1 in 200.
- Criminals can get according to industry analysts upwards of $150K per attack.
In essence, the broader technology ecosystem therefore continues to struggle. And the bar to successfully waging a phishing attack continues to lower with the advent of more sophisticated phishing kits and increasingly advanced malware allows attackers to monetize victims over and over again.
So what can be done?
Find out by joining us on this informative webinar where Securosis and Malcovery leaders will discuss how Phishing Intelligence technology can reduce fraud losses and incident response costs---both near time and in the future—and preserves and protects brand reputation.
During this webinar, the speakers will discuss
- Industrial Phishing Tactics
- Analyzing the Phish Food Chain
- Quick Wins with Email-based Threat Intelligence
- Phishing Takedowns vs. Phishing Intelligence
- And more
