Phishing comes in many different forms, but spear-phishing is arguably the most dangerous type of phishing attack and the most difficult to detect.

Attackers will carefully research their victims and use sophisticated social engineering techniques to gain their trust and add credibility to their correspondence.

Traditional phishing attacks will often impersonate a trusted company and typically target masses of people at the same time. In contrast, spear-phishing is highly personalized and targeted.

With 91% of all cyber-attacks starting with a spear-phishing email, it’s vital that organizations are armed with all the knowledge they need to defend against attack. 

In this webinar, we will explore the various spear-phishing methods used by cyber-attackers and discuss how organizations can protect themselves from this growing threat.

Key Takeaways

  • The danger of spear-phishing attacks and how they can impact your business
  • The spear-phishing process: how attacks are crafted and what methods are used to target victims
  • How to protect your organization from spear-phishing
