Data loss prevention company Digital Guardian posted advice from MadPipe on preventing phishing attacks. Our comments focus on cultural change within the organization and corporate education.
The odds go up when there are pockets of personnel who lack a basic level of technical literacy. Announcements about phishing may only cover one or two examples of exploits, but phishing is endlessly adaptable. The two options for mitigating risk, which are not mutually exclusive, are cultural change in the organization and a mandated standard of technical literacy for all employees and contractors with access to organizational resources.
