Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information or data, such as usernames, passwords and credit card details or other sensitive details, by impersonating oneself as a trustworthy entity in a digital communication. Source: Wikipedia.

Global business is interspersed with a diversity of industrial sectors, united by a single, common communication thread that is key to any business: email connectivity. Email continues to be the most popular attack vector, via organizations at their email perimeters, from inside the organisation (through compromised accounts, vulnerable insiders, social engineering), or beyond the organization’s perimeters (the domains they own and their brands via impersonation). Cyber threat actors and threat groups are continuously researching and testing out new tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) in an attempt to overcome and exploit this increasingly sophisticated and complicated technology.
