Phishing and ransomware were already critical threats before the health pandemic forced a sudden shift to remote working.
Osterman Research conducted an in-depth survey of security-focused professionals. Here are the key takeaways from the research:
- Half of organizations believe they are effective at counteracting various phishing and ransomware threats.
- Only 16% of organizations reported no security incident types related to phishing and ransomware in the past 12 months.
- Respondents indicated only mid-range confidence in the ability of various groups of employees to recognize phishing attempts through email and other channels.
