After we launch our 1st Global Infographic about Phishing (Portuguese, English and Spanish) in 2015, we continued analyzing people behavior, performing more than 2 million simulations and training in our ongoing education platform, PhishX.
Over the last year major Cybersecurity incidents occurred, with global repercussions, especially Carbanak case, which resulted in actual losses of more than $ 1 billion in various financial institutions. It was well explained in the global news, as in this Video.
Other research organizations such as the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG), which aims to engage and unify the global response against Cybercrime continues disseminating data collected through its network of partners and highlighting how Phishing is a global and real threat. A large portion, about 38% in a few months, of those threats came from the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), Emerging Markets and Latin America.
About People behavior
Phishing still is the main door to invasions and threats in our society. Data collected by PhishX and its partners, indicate that around 91% of companies have already suffered an attack based on Phishing.
Highlighting this issue, people cannot identify and distinguish real messages from Phishing, falling for more than two simulations at least 83% of campaigns simulated conducted by PhishX network of partners and customers.
It is the average of recurrent training required for a person to recognize a Phishing message.
Paralleling with the increasing use of e-mail outside the organization, the number of unique access through mobile devices grew to 36% in 2015, a trend that will soon be the main reading platform of corporate email.
We gathered some opinions from partners and big names in the industry to highlight some trends up what will happen in the coming years in our society.
