Three Billion Phishing Emails are Sent Every Day



Phishing attacks are wreaking havoc as they encourage unsuspecting recipients to hand over critical credentials that give hackers access to network infrastructure, personal financial accounts, and other important portals. 

This type of cybersecurity threat is ultimately the most defensible, since phishing attacks not only need to make it through email filters, but recipients have to directly act upon the message. Yet, they continue to inflict serious damage on small and medium businesses alike, becoming more common and complicated in today’s digital landscape. 

According to a recent report, more than 3.4 billion phishing emails are sent each day, making it increasingly probable that an employee will accidentally engage with the message. This underscores the need for awareness and prevention training to disrupt these efforts. Given the high cost of recovering from a phishing attack, acquiring comprehensive training from trusted professionals (like us!) is a cost-effective way to equip your employees to defend against phishing attacks.
