The #1 Way Cybercriminals Steal Data
Posted By: Ryan Richardson - 4/7/2021 12:00:00 AM


Did you know that fake login pages have become one of the most successful ways for criminals to steal your personal data? One of our email security partners conducted a 
six-month study last year on this topic and identified more than 50,000 fake login pages from over 200 of the world's top brands. 

 

This is a shocking number. 

 

It was also reported that the most common recipients of phishing emails leading to fake login pages are employees in financial services, healthcare, technology, and government agencies. This is due to the large amount of sensitive data that these employees have access to. Cyber criminals view these credentials as a gateway to a wealth of valuable information. 

Fake login pages have been around for a while, but they have consistently been successful for two reasons:

  1. Messages that contain fake logins sometimes have the ability to bypass legacy email security technologies like secure email gateways and spam filters.

  2. The second reason is a psychological concept called inattentional blindness. This happens when someone is unable to notice an unexpected change in plain sight. Even people with regular phishing awareness training are susceptible to this.

Therefore, anti-phishing software that uses a combination of AI, deep learning, and the common sense of real people is essential in identifying and combating these threats.
