91% of cyberattacks start with one simple phishing email!

Phishing attacks and scams have been around for a long time and continue to be an issue for companies worldwide. In the past, these scams were fairly easy to spot: emails with obvious grammatical errors, fake login pages or links redirecting you to fraudulent bank accounts. Nowadays, scams are becoming increasingly sophisticated and even if you’re the most attentive Internet user you might fall for nefarious internet hoaxes.

This month's Executive Threat Brief provides you the latest online scams used by fraudsters to steal personal information and how you can protect yourself.

BrandProtect Executive Threat Briefs are designed to minimize your exposures by educating you and your team about simple steps you can take to protect your personal information online.

BrandProtect has developed a series of free, monthly Executive Threat Briefs focused on social media risk.  The briefs deal with online situations that you and your people encounter every day, and the simple steps you can take to be better protected from common social media dangers. You can use this piece internally and externally for educating your staff  (and alerting their families) on social media risk.
