Personally identifiable information (PII) is some of the most valuable data that cybercriminals go after.
With a Social Security number and birthdate, an industrious hacker could take control of nearly all aspects of your or a coworker’s life.
With this much up for grabs, cybercriminals are turning to the keepers of this data—you, your employees and/or coworkers—to gain access to PII. This often means phishing emails targeted at multiple employee levels; from general employees, to middle managers, to executives.
You and your people need to know common tactics phishers use to lure users into giving up valuable PII. That’s why we’ve produced a shareable infographic designed to keep your employees aware of the ways cybercriminals phish for this valuable information.
Above any specific method or tactic, all emails requesting personal information in any form should be looked at with extra scrutiny. The reputation, financial well-being, and even the very existence of an organization can depend on it.
