Phishing is defined by the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) as a broadly launched social engineering attack in which an electronic identity is misrepresented in an attempt to trick individuals into revealing personal credentials that can be used fraudulently against them. In short, it’s online fraud to the highest degree.
Although it’s been around for years, phishing is still one of the most common and effective online scams. The schemes are varied, typically involving some combination of spoofed email (spam), malicious software (malware), and fake websites to harvest personal information from unwitting consumers. The explosive rise of mobile devices, mobile applications, and social media networks has given phishers new vectors to exploit, along with access to volumes of personal data that can be used in more targeted attacks or spear phishing. The fact that phishing attacks are still so common highlights their efficacy and reinforces the need to implement comprehensive phishing and response plans to protect organizations.
An effective phishing protection plan should focus on four primary areas: Prevention, Detection, Response, and Recovery. High-level recommendations for each of the four areas are outlined in this whitepaper.

The evolution of cyber threats ad the cybercriminal community has evolved from the days of pranksters launching annoying viruses and spam that would be considered primitive today.

Anti-virus does much more than reactively detect known viruses; it proactively scans for unknown ones too. So, how do scanners really work? The aim of this paper is to reduce some of the confusion around the workings of AV technology, and to clarify what is realistic to expect from AV protection, particularly heuristic analysis.

A great email helps you engage your customer and deliver your message, which can make a difference between a click-through and a direct route to your website or losing a customer’s interest and being sent to the spam folder. As consumers become increasingly savvy about all types of communications—from mobile to social to email—email, for example think about Gmail’s tabbed inbox where users can filter and organize their inboxes. It is becoming even more difficult to stay front and center. Download now to learn more!
According to experts at TrendLabs, spam now makes up close to 95% of all email and continues to grow. In the first three months of 2008 spam rates almost doubled over rates observed at the end of 2007 and TrendLabs predicts that average daily spam volumes will increase by 30 to 50 billion messages per day within the year.1 As spam continues to grow at dramatic rates, traditional on-premise email security products are failing to keep up. This limitation is one of the primary reasons that IDC predicts demand for hosted security solutions -also known as SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions-will grow by more than 30% annually through 2012.2 For context, the growth rate for hosted email security is projected to be more than eight times that of the traditional software email security market, and more than 60% faster than appliance-based email security solutions.

Spam generates an enormous amount of traffic that is both time-consuming to handle and resource intensive. Apart from that, a large number of organizations have been victims of NDR spam that has an effect similar to a Distributed Denial of Service on the email system.

Email has become something of a critical utility, much like the electricity that powers our offices: it must be available 24 hours a day, it must provide reliable performance, and its cost must be reasonable. However, unlike electrical systems (at least from the user’s perspective), email systems require significant amounts of labor to manage well. Email systems must periodically be upgraded. New hardware must be introduced as organizations migrate to new systems. Security must be maintained and upgraded to protect the system from intrusions. Additional hardware must be deployed to protect against outages that could seriously harm user productivity. Plus, unexpected events, such as spam storms or natural disasters can drive up costs substantially in ways that were not anticipated.
