Phishing attacks ramped up to historic levels at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that it’s been two years since these highs, IDG checked in with 300 IT executives across North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region to learn their current levels of concern about phishing.
They found 93% of executives were still concerned about phishing, with 61% highly concerned. It’s no wonder – companies reported an average of 28 attacks each in the past 12 months.
And victims of phishing cited serious consequences:
37% suffered downtime lasting longer than a day
32% experienced lost productivity
19% had to pay legal or regulatory fines
