Phishing emails are another form of spam that’s increasingly difficult to recognize from genuine emails as hackers get more and more proficient at their job. Spear phishing is a relatively new practice whereby a specific organisation is targeted in order to gain access to confidential data, including the personal and financial details of customers.
Spear phishing is flourishing due to company employees! They inadvertently give personal information out to hackers via an email sent to the employee. Unfortunately these emails are written in such a way that it is totally believable to the recipient that it has come from the a legitimate company. Just one employee has to act upon it by going to the site supplied in the email or in some cases by simply opening a file attached to the email, and the spyware will be surreptitiously installed on the victims’ computer exposing their personal information to the hacker, and worse, giving the hacker access to the businesses network.
But don’t despair! There are ways to deter these hackers and block phishing attacks through security solutions incorporating antivirus scan removal. This can protect your email network by scrutinizing all received email, performing checks against the sender and the email itself, all links embedded within the email, and by placing into quarantine those emails that look suspicious. This prevents them from even making it onto your network and will drastically reduce the possibility of becoming a target of a scam.
