SAN MATEO, CA - MPA Networks, Inc., a leading managed technology services provider (MTSP), is helping small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) thwart cyberattacks and protect their organizations from unnecessary downtime by addressing the most common tactic that cybercriminals use to attack modern workplaces; phishing. Phishing is the fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers. According to PhishMe research, "91% of the time, phishing emails are behind successful cyberattacks." MPA Networks, Inc. is helping businesses identify the 3 tell-tale signs behind the majority of successful phishing attacks and how mere employee awareness can eliminate the vast majority of this threat from entering an organization.
"The overwhelming majority of security breaches caused by phishing are completely avoidable," stated Michael Price, President & Founder of MPA Networks, Inc.. "While cybercriminals have grown more sophisticated in their approach, the average attack consists of the same key ingredients: an undereducated employee, effective bait and a temporary lapse in judgment. While we are in the business of securing an organization's entire network and protecting them from any threats whatsoever, there are some initial steps that will safeguard a company without costing much time, energy or capital expenditure. These measures we'd like to share are extremely easy to implement and are excellent first steps in protecting a company from cybercrime."
