Abuse Box Forwarding (ABF) - Improve Response Time, Reduce Manpower, Compliance

Posted by Dylan Sachs on Thu, Feb 08, 2018

One of the defining characteristics of a takedown provider is its ability to detect phishing sites.  Through various approaches, takedown vendors have defined their strategies for detection of malicious emails - either building up their own spam traps, pulling data from third-parties like the Anti-Phishing Working Group, partnering with mail service providers, or even acquiring other organizations.  While these approaches are often successful, in that they detect a significant number of phishing attacks, they are still incomplete, and often are missing a non-negligible amount of phish.

The Scam That Can Bankrupt Your Business

Posted by Alexa Villanueva on Wed, Sep 20, 2017

The FBI has reported a 2,370% increase in business email compromise (BEC) between January 2015 and December 2016. This type of fraud includes what we at BrandProtect refer as email phishing, spear phishing, or whaling.

The scam, commonly known as “CEO fraud”, is a highly engineered attack that will typically target high-level executives by impersonating them to trick people inside the organization to provide sensitive information and ultimately making the victim wire money to a fraudulent account.

Threat Brief: Ransomware Prevention Best Practices

Posted by Alexa Villanueva on Thu, Jun 01, 2017

Ransomware is now the #1 security concern for organizations

Ransomware is a cyber epidemic that continues to evolve, targeting home users, businesses, and government networks globally. This type of cyberattack blocks access to your computer or network, and holds the information “hostage” until ransom is paid by virtual currency (typically Bitcoins). Ransomware infection methods are no different than “typical” malware - opening email attachments (even from known-senders), or visiting a webpage that surreptitiously installs the code.

The latest cyberattack in history, named “WannaCry”, recently affected more than 400,000 systems in 150 countries including United States, Canada and China (with the largest concentration of computers infected due to unlicensed or outdated versions of Windows), and approximately 4,000 other ransomware attacks have occurred daily since January 2016.

Understand what you need to do to monitor and protect your computer and information from these cyberattacks. This month's BrandProtect Executive Threat Brief provides the best practices to avoid the ransomware epidemic.

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

(both current and projected) for 2017."

Job scams, phishing, and identity theft—while most people would recognize some or all of those as “cyber threats”, one thing that few people realize is that none of those can have as big an impact as a threat to your reputation.

Both people and brands alike can spend years building up the public trust, building up their reputation, to the point where they are beloved by all—but being so high in the minds of the public only means that it takes a single misstep to come tumbling down.

Understand what you need to do to monitor and protect your brand and reputation online. This month's BrandProtect Executive Threat Brief provides the knowledge to avoid reputation risk, and helps you with key tips to keep you protected.
