Survey Shows Phishing Attacks Are Up And Few Are Spared

Phishing

Concern about phishing attacks is high among IT and cybersecurity decision-makers, especially those at larger companies, and cuts across global geographies. It is also warranted, as phishing attacks are on a dramatic rise since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

These are just some of the highlights from a recent IDG Research survey of 300 IT executives, equally divided among North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific (Japan and Australia). In the survey, 93% of the responding executives reported being concerned about phishing, 61% highly so.

It’s little wonder, given that 76% of the respondents said that phishing attacks are up since the pandemic began. On average, respondents estimate they’ve been targeted 28 times in the past year, and more than half have been hit with a COVID-related phishing attempt.
