While malware and ransomware tend to dominate cybersecurity headlines, Fortra’s research shows that nearly 99% of email threats reaching corporate inboxes utilize impersonation rather than malware. Email impersonation is a key component of credential phishing, advance fee fraud, hybrid vishing, and business email compromise schemes. Because email impersonation scams rely on social engineering rather than technology, the barrier to entry for an aspiring cybercriminal is almost non-existent. In this segment, we’ll explore strategies for defending against email impersonation.
