Email Security: Unawareness syndrome might cost you a fortune!

  • Post author:

In Q2 2020, research suggests that 2,578,501 phishing attacks were detected in the Gulf countries including UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, and Egypt according to a recent Kaspersky research.

This data has a direct correlation with the ongoing pandemic crisis situation!

The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has captured the entire world’s attention. We are now in the last quarter of the year, but some or a lot of us are still working from home. The usage of cloud-based video communication applications like Webex, Zoom, Skype, etc. has increased significantly. CheckPoint research uncovered that more than 1,700 Zoom-related domains have been registered in the last month itself of Q2, out of which 4% are possibly malicious.

DarkMatter, a UAE based cyber security firm said that the breaches in the Middle East are “widespread, frequently undetected, and increasingly appear to be state-sponsored.” in one of their reports. This also implies that the bad guys are increasing their endeavours, abusing the global crisis as an excellent opportunity wreaking havoc to organizations’ reputational and financial stability.

Staying ahead of the threat actors and vectors through adequate detection, response and prevention methods is a definitive way to minimize risk exposure.

Hackers mimic several different organisations globally, like the World Health Organization (WHO), US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Japanese welfare service provider. An example of how innocent technology users are being tricked:

The cybercriminals try to personalise it by adding the name of a doctor, but this name is not genuine, and the lady is not an official WHO personnel.

Now, this email could easily trick people who are caught in the moment of unawareness, potentially leading to a massive data breach, identity theft and/or a security compromise.

The hackers will not stop trying, it could be your organization next!
