Human targeted attacks continued to lead the pack in 2016. Attackers’ used automation and personalisation to increase the volume and click-through rates of their campaigns. Taking a page from the B2B e-marketer’s playbook, cyber criminals are adopting marketing best practices and sending their campaigns on Tuesdays and Thursdays when click-through rates are higher. Meanwhile, BEC and credential phishing attacks targeted the human factor directly--no technical exploits needed. Instead, they used social engineering to persuade victims into sending money, sensitive information and account credentials.
Timing is everything—attackers know that hitting your employees with a well-crafted email at the just the right time produces the best results. Of course, this varies by region. So if you are responsible for worldwide SecOps, you need visibility into not only attack patterns but also when and which employees tend to click.

Our client offered electronic money transfer services. For years they had provided the digital links and the networks of agents that enabled people to send money quickly and easily around the world. But digital technology introduced a number of challenges to their business. Not only were pure digital payment companies threatening the agent-based model, but their business models had lower operating costs than a network of physical agents. Also, other technologies such as virtual money transfer via blockchain were being more widely adopted. In addition, industry mergers strengthened competitors, while increased protectionism began to reduce the number of migrant workers - the core customers of our client.
The digital world was looking like a difficult place to operate in.
