WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 3, 2016 – Digital Guardian, a next generation data protection platform purpose built to stop data theft, today announced its release of an educational infographic that provides key insights that cover phishing attacks in their many forms and what users can do to protect themselves against this highly common online threat.
This infographic was released in celebration of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), which takes place during the month of October.
2016 will mark the sixth year of the NCSAM slogan “STOP. THINK. CONNECT.” which is simple advice for everyone to stay safer and more secure online. According to NCSAM, the STOP.THINK.CONNECT slogan means:
- STOP: make sure security measures are in place
- THINK: about the consequences of your actions and behaviors online
- CONNECT: and enjoy the Internet
As a National Cybersecurity Awareness Champion, Digital Guardian supports STOP.THINK.CONNECT. with the release of the “Don’t Get Hooked: How to Recognize and Avoid Phishing Attacks” infographic.
Phishing attacks are by no means a new issue, but rather one that has plagued individuals and businesses for many years. In fact, the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that 58% of incidents involving compromised user credentials utilized phishing attacks. As these attacks continue to increase in frequency and sophistication, it is of critical importance that end users and businesses learn some of the telltale signs of phishing and how to react when they are being targeted.
