Innovation and security are at the heart of every successful business. The challenges of cybersecurity have never been greater until now. In partnership with Connectwise, we tackled a crucial question: “How do you protect your business from phishing attacks?”
In a world where digital has become the norm, businesses are increasingly dependent on technology for their operations. But with this dependence comes an increase in online threats. In particular, phishing attacks have become more frequent and sophisticated. These attacks threaten the security of sensitive data and the stability of businesses.
Cybersecurity is a crucial issue, and the threat of phishing attacks is constantly growing. The webinar organized by Ited in partnership with Connectwise provided valuable keys to strengthening corporate security. In this session, participants explored the subtleties of phishing attacks and discovered concrete solutions against them.
The current context, marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, has increased the risks associated with phishing. Indeed, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Agency (CAFC) has recorded an alarming 200% increase in fraud-related complaints. Between 2019 and 2020, 70% of these were directly related to phishing.
This trend has resulted in significant financial consequences, with more than $100 million in losses related to fraud in 2020. The attacks have affected a diverse group of victims, including individuals, businesses, governments, and non-profit organizations alike.
The impact on the security of sensitive data and customer confidence is significant. What’s more, phishing attacks have become increasingly sophisticated, targeted and commonplace. Hence, it is imperative that every company is ready to face up to these growing threats.
