More Phishing Attacks = More Ransomware

ActualTech Media moderators David Davis and Scott Bekker had an interesting discussion recently about phishing attacks and how prevalent they remain. This has special relevance to ransomware, as so many ransomware incidents start as phishing attacks. Some of the highlights of their chat include:

  • The four most common current attack vectors, according to Cisco research
  • The dramatic increase in phishing attempts between 2020-2021
  • The most impersonated brands in phishing attacks
  • The increasing use of “deep fakes” to enhance a phishing attack

It’s worth checking out this quick discussion, which served to introduce a longer security-focused webinar.
