Businesses are becoming more and more dependent on the internet to run their company. Some companies completely run their businesses online through the cloud.

One of the biggest vulnerabilities to every business is through email.

They are called phishing attacks, where attackers send emails to learn information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card numbers by pretending to be a reputable company or person.

These attacks are growing each year and are costing companies billions of dollars. Hopefully after reading these phishing attack statistics you will start training your employees to spot and dismiss phishing attacks.
