The 50 Most Impersonated Brands in Phishing Attacks
Phishing is becoming increasingly common, targeting both individuals and businesses. It is currently the fastest-growing form of cybercrime. Cybercriminals attempt to steal sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, by posing as well-known companies. These attempts can be made through email, SMS, or website URLs with spelling similar to the official site.
Phishing attacks exploit our trust in the brands we appreciate and use daily, making them increasingly difficult to detect, even for the most experienced digital users, according to Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare.
