The Human Factor 2017

How today's threats prey on the human factor

Advanced Threats Report

Today’s advanced attacks focus more on exploiting human flaws than system flaws. To explore this under-reported aspect of enterprise threats, we created The Human Factor Report.

Highlights of this year’s report include:

  • Business email compromise (BEC) attacks rose 45% in Q4 of 2016. Attacks are shifting beyond the CEO-CFO relationship, targeting other employee groups deeper within the organization.
  • Fraudulent social media accounts became a major feature of the threat landscape in 2016. These so-called “angler phishing” attacks grew by 150% in 2016.
  • Mobile clicks on malicious URLs doubled revealing the importance of protecting devices beyond the enterprise.
