We created an infographic to help spread awareness of one of the greatest and most common threats to computer users of all kinds: phishing attacks.

Phishing attacks are by no means a new issue, but rather one that has plagued individuals and businesses for many years. In fact, the 2022 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that the human element was the key driver in 82% of all breaches, with phishing easily accounting for the majority of those breaches. As these attacks continue to increase in frequency and sophistication, it is of critical importance that end users and businesses learn some of the telltale signs of phishing and how to react when they are being targeted. To do our part in spreading cybersecurity awareness, we’ve created an infographic covering phishing attacks in their many forms and what users can do to protect themselves against this highly common online threat.

So how can users prevent phishing attacks? Check out our infographic below!
