Cyber crime is on the rise in New Zealand, with nearly a third of companies having experienced a cyber-attack in the past two years, many of which have been initiated by a Phishing attack.
Phishing is the name given to emails that are designed to get your users to interact with the criminal, generally clicking on a link to install malware or providing sensitive details that can be used to further breach the organisation.
These attacks range from poorly crafted scams attempting to get your staff to accept money from an “long lost rich relative” through to extremely sophisticated scams that are months in the making.
To protect against these attacks 3 key elements are required
