An Emerging Target for Data Breaches: HR and Finance EmployeesAs phishing attacks evolve in sophistication, human resource and finance teams are becoming caught in the crosshairs.

Many times, employee data can command a higher price tag on the Dark Web than customer data, since it is more likely to include social security numbers, dates of birth, names of dependents, and other lucrative data that can be used in perpetuity, instead of a one-time payment card fraud. When it comes to phishing attacks, it’s important to remember that human users are the weakest link the security chain.
