In an era where digital security is paramount, the prevalence of phishing attacks poses a significant threat to businesses of all sizes. In 2021, a staggering 92% of Australian organisations experienced phishing attacks, according to Proofpoint's research. This alarming statistic highlights the critical need for robust security measures and informed strategies to protect your business.
At Myriad Services, we understand the intricacies of your business and are committed to being your partner in making your business not just safer but smarter in the face of these threats.
The landscape of cyber-attacks in Australia is particularly concerning. Australians have been found more likely to fall victim to phishing scams than individuals in countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan. This vulnerability is further exacerbated by the highly impersonated brands used in phishing attacks, including Amazon and Google at 13%, Facebook and WhatsApp at 9%, and Netflix and Apple at 2%.
In understanding your business, we acknowledge that 96% of phishing attacks occur via email, with another 3% through malicious websites and just 1% via phone, as reported by Tessian. This insight guides our strategy in fortifying your business's first line of defence – your email systems. We develop a bespoke strategy that addresses your specific risks, taking into account the most common avenues of attack.
With over 62,000 phishing scams reported in Australia in 2022, leading to losses of over $3.72 million (as per Avast), it’s evident that awareness is key. We focus on training your team to recognise and respond to phishing attempts appropriately. This ongoing education is crucial in equipping your team with the knowledge to identify and avoid falling prey to these scams.
Our approach combines advanced email filtering solutions with user-friendly interfaces, ensuring seamless integration into your daily operations. This proactive measure is essential in catching phishing emails before they reach your inboxes, significantly reducing the risk of a successful attack.
Given the dynamic nature of cyber threats, regular security audits and updates are essential. We conduct these audits to identify potential vulnerabilities and ensure your systems are updated to combat the latest phishing techniques.
In the face of a suspected phishing attempt, immediate action is crucial. Our team provides rapid and effective support to verify suspicious messages and respond to potential breaches, ensuring the safety and integrity of your business.
Our commitment extends to preparing your business for the future. We deploy advanced threat detection systems and AI-driven security protocols that adapt to new threats, enhancing your overall security posture.
