To Fight The Phish Focus on Firmware

We’re in week 2 of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and the theme this week is “Fight the Phish”. Phishing is when cyber criminals try to lure you into revealing confidential information, passwords, financial information, or other data. Most phishing is done via email (96%), often looking like a legitimate person or organization. Nearly 1/3 of cyber breaches are the result of phishing; when the purpose is cyber espionage phishing is used 78% of the time (2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report). And email-based phishing efforts are fast growing – with 11 times more phishing reports in 2020 than 2016.
