We are seeing large numbers of our clients falling prey to both phishing and whaling. Both types of fraud are aimed at get information and/or money from the victims. Unfortunately, not only are these becoming more common but the criminals are getting better at it. Your internal security may be top of the line, but what about the security policies of some of your largest vendors? Remember that one misplaced Office 365 email password gives criminals access. With it, they are able to not only defraud your vendor but also provides an open door to defraud you as well.
