Phishing or Whaling? Don’t get hooked.

Let’s all be cyber-resilient !

The jargon explained:

Phishing” is a cyber-attack that uses email or text message as a weapon to obtain your customers’ sensitive information. Typically, the fraudster will mimic your website, which is registered under a fake domain name, to obtain your customers’ usernames, passwords, bank credentials or credit card details.

Whaling” is aimed at catching bigger fish than phishing: it’s an attack that specifically targets top board members in companies, such as CEOs, CFOs, etc. using the same techniques as phishing.

Cyber resilience” is a step up from the old cybersecurity. It is now commonly accepted in the business world that it is no longer a matter of “if”, but “when” a company will suffer a cyber-attack. Cyber resilience gives a company the ability to prepare for, respond to and recover from cyber-attacks.
