noun phish·​ing | \ ˈfi-shiŋ \

Definition of phishing: A scam where a user is duped (typically by a deceptive e-mail message) into revealing personal or confidential information which the scammer can use illicitly. The deceptive email can lead the user to a fake web page that collects information, encourage the user to unknowingly download malicious files, or even trick the user with social engineering.

Fighting the Leading Cause of Ransomware

Phishing is the leading cause of ransomware for businesses and is a threat that needs to be taken seriously. No software can be 100% foolproof because of the rapid evolution of today’s threats. The only surefire way to combat phishing is to educate your staff on how to identify malicious emails and arm them with the knowledge of what to do both proactively to prevent infection or concrete steps if a threat makes its way through.

Today’s tools are incredibly helpful in protecting and identifying threats after they occur, but human error is the number one cause for successful scam attempts on businesses.
