Trend Micro: 84 Percent of Organizations Face Phishing Attacks

Trend Micro is offering a new whitepaper, entitled: “How to Reduce the Risk of Phishing and Ransomware” by Osterman Research.

This document examines instances of phishing and ransomware e-mail-based attacks, as well as the “growing need” to monitor organizational security strategy, strengthen against vulnerabilities and target emerging threat vectors.

The report surveyed 130 “security-focused” professionals, determining that:

  • 37 percent of organizations believe themselves to be “highly effective” at countering 11 or more threats.
  • 84 percent uncovered phishing or ransomware attacks in the past 12 months.
  • Those surveyed had “mid-range” confidence in the ability of employees to recognize phishing attacks.

The document is available, upon request, via Trend Micro.
