  • Are You Fighting the Phish?

    When a ransomware attack occurs from a technical exploit, it’s usually a soft target in personnel. Phishing is always the first or last resort of an attacker. When they can’t get in from a server or work station vulnerability, they’ll look to exploit a gullible person. It usually comes in the form of an email directing them to a watering hole (website) where they’re tricked into revealing credentials; or with malware in the form of a malicious Word document or .pdf file. Once its opened, the hacker then has access behind the firewall. It’s critical for security teams to proactively train and test their employees, with regular refreshers and transparency to call out the total success or failure rate of the organization. Encouraging through progress makes a much more resilient team.
