Since many companies have made the shift too remote working this has further increased the possibility of Phishing Attacks on company infrastructure. Many companies have had to quickly adapt to the new technologies and have not closed many secure gaps.
This with the increase in personal and business devices is a major cause for concern as secure control is lost and no longer monitored.
According to Gov.uk 39% of UK companies have suffered security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months (Nov 1st 2021). These statistics indicates that hackers are focusing their efforts on spear-phishing and social engineering tactics to trick users into handing over their secure information. These attacks are becoming more and more sophisticated, and some would fool the most tech savvy of users.
