With the recent worldwide crisis, many organisations are implementing business continuity plans for their staff without including security baselines. These users are vulnerable without their knowledge which leads to successful phishing attempts. Considering that data is one of the most important assets for many organisations, compromised users can cause a ripple effect which hurts the company’s credibility.
There are a few precautions you could take to minimise such incidents:
1. Educate your employees especially when they are accessing their email via mobile devices, to always pay attention to the sender’s email address. Phishing emails will spoof email addresses and some mobile devices only display the sender’s name and not the email address.
2. Beware of emails with messages asking you to re-validate your account or emails that will suspend your work account immediately if action is not taken. These usually contains links to a fake website for credential harvesting.
3. Implement solutions that are capable of detecting phishing emails, malicious attachments and URLs scanning.
4. Conduct phishing campaigns and provide regular awareness to educate staff.
