Your Business CommunityPhishing attacks are emails or malicious websites (among other channels) meant solicit personal information from an individual or company by posing as a trustworthy organization or entity.

The goal of a phishing is to trick the recipient into taking the attacker’s desired action, such as providing login credentials or entering identifying information into a fraudulent website.These websites may contain malicious code that executes on the user’s local machine when a link is clicked from a phishing email to open the website.

Entrepreneurs and small businesses can be especially vulnerable to these types of threats, as many of these organizations lack the full-featured network and data security processes and protocols that large organizations employ.Vigilance will help prevent  an individual or organization from falling victim to a phishing attack that puts sensitive personal and corporate data at risk.
