Stop phishing email scams with Mimecast
Phishing email scams play a major role in the arsenal of tools that hackers deploy against individuals and companies. These email-borne attacks are disguised as messages from trusted sources – credit card companies, banks, social websites and shipping companies are frequent examples. Phishing email scams are designed to get the recipient to share confidential information like credit card numbers, passwords and other sensitive data. Typically, a phishing virus email will ask the user to visit a website that turns out to be infected with malware, or to visit a site that spoofs a legitimate company.
Spear-phishing is an even more potent and targeted phishing attack that uses social engineering techniques to trick specific individuals into sharing sensitive information.
