Where IT and Security Professionals come together to make the world a more resilient place.
Human error is one of the leading barriers to effective cybersecurity. Casual security mistakes can lead to career-threatening results. Putting the right technology in place to improve your cybersecurity is important. However, an educated workforce that’s aware of the threats and knows how to prevent them is the last piece of the puzzle.
You can teach employees what they need to know to keep your organization secure, and we’re here to help.
This week, we’re tackling the issue of how to avoid voice phishing (vishing). You can learn about other similar threats—and how to prevent vishing by downloading our cybersecurity awareness training kit.
In vishing, a cybercriminal contacts you by phone, impersonating someone in a position of authority. Vishing is similar to phishing, but the attack is delivered by phone instead of via email.
The caller might pretend to be from the company’s IT or finance department, impersonate an executive or business partner, or claim to be from a software company such as Microsoft. The caller attempts to convince you to provide private information or take an action that can be used to compromise the company’s systems, or to steal from you personally.
