According to an article by Smart Company (one of Australia’s premier publication for growth businesses and entrepreneurs), 516,380 small businesses fell victim to cyber-crime last year. The first step in falling for a cyber-attack is believing that you won’t be attacked. Prevention starts with educating your employees about some of the most common types of cyber-attacks such as Spear Phishing and how they can be countered.
Spear Phishing attacks differ from other phishing attacks in that they target a victim to extract information. The messages are tailored to the victim and thus increasing the chances of fooling the recipient. The first step to prevent spear phishing is to minimise exchange of confidential information via email and to avoid posting too much personal information online.
