Phishing remains one of the most common types of data breaches and often leads to a ransomware attack. When ransomware hits your IT, all or substantial parts of your IT will stop functioning and your data becomes compromised. The only way to bring your systems back online is to restore from backup or to “pay the piper,” the cybercriminal, their ransom. While ransoms of the past were in the thousands, they are now typically hundreds of thousands or even millions! In a worst-case scenario, there will be operating losses due to interruption of services when restoring and rebuilding your systems. The other main results of phishing are the stealing of personal or confidential business information, as well as the hijacking of a person’s mailbox, to deliver false instructions to illicit a payment to the cybercriminal.
