What is email phishing?
Phishing is the most widespread computer attack in 2022. It is a cybercrime technique based on fraud or spoofing. In concrete terms, it makes the victim believe that he/she has a trusted third party in front of him/her, and encourages him/her to disclose personal, professional or sensitive information. This type of cyber attack uses social engineering tricks to abuse its targets.
A phishing attack is mostly carried out by email or by phone. The hacker goes fishing and pretends to be a trusted third party in order to obtain login details or credit card numbers, for example.

What to do in case of an email phishing attack?
A few simple and effective steps can help you avoid falling into the nets of hackers and get rid of a large number of phishing email attempts:
- Check the sender’s email address and compare it to the alias.
- Hover over the links to get a preview, and check them before clicking.
- Go to the site’s home page (through your browser) instead of clicking on the link.
- Do not click on links or download attachments from a suspicious email.
- Do not respond to suspicious messages (poorly written content, urgent request).
- And if in doubt, it is best to call the sender to make sure the email is genuine.
These attacks are increasingly difficult to detect because they are more diversified and sophisticated. This is the case, for example, of the Browser-in-the-Browser (BitB), identified in 2022. Clearly, it is essential to implement an anti-phishing solution and to make your teams aware of the threat of mail phishing.

Why install an anti-phishing solution for professionals?
Phishing is the practice of impersonating a known company in order to trick them into disclosing confidential and often business-critical information. By installing an anti-phishing software for your company, and by securing your mailbox, you will reduce the risk by almost 70% since phishing will be blocked and will not reach your teams anymore.
How do you know if you have been phished?
If you think you have clicked on a fraudulent email, and disclosed confidential information, start by contacting the company to make sure that it was not a legitimate email. If not, you will have to stop the transaction (if it concerns a payment), file a complaint and change your login and password for more security. And to prevent this from happening again, the most reliable solution is to implement an anti-phishing email security solution like Protect.
What are the dangers of phishing in companies?
Phishing can have dramatic consequences on your company since it can allow cybercriminals to penetrate your computer systems.
