What is brand impersonation?
A brand impersonation attack typically involves an email that seems to come from a trusted source, such as a colleague or a familiar organization. These attacks dupe end users into providing sensitive information and/or clicking on links that download malicious content. And, when an organization’s own brand is used in an attack, brand impersonation chips away (or, in some cases, destroys) customers’ trust.
