Phishing is defined by the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) as a broadly launched social engineering attack in which an electronic identity is misrepresented in an attempt to trick individuals into revealing personal credentials that can be used fraudulently against them. In short, it’s online fraud to the highest degree. Although it’s been around for years, phishing is still one of the most common and effective online scams. The schemes are varied, typically involving some combination of spoofed email (spam), malicious software (malware), and fake websites to harvest personal information from unwitting consumers. The explosive rise of mobile devices, mobile applications, and social media networks has given phishers new vectors to exploit, along with access to volumes of personal data that can be used in more targeted attacks or spear phishing. The fact that phishing attacks are still so common highlights their efficacy and reinforces the need to implement comprehensive phishing and response plans to protect organizations. An effective phishing protection plan should focus on four primary areas: Prevention, Detection, Response, and Recovery. High-level recommendations for each of the four areas are outlined in this whitepaper.

For a long time, the phone channel was thought to be isolated and less important to defend, when compared to the physical and online channels. The general consensus was that fraudsters could only steal so much over the phone, and it had little impact on fraud across the rest of the organization. But those assumptions are wrong, and they’re becoming grossly inaccurate as technology evolves. The phone channel is now more vulnerable and exploitable than ever before, as annual fraud loss is now a $14 billion problem. Between aggressive fraud rings, social engineering and sophisticated techniques, vulnerable call centers are feeling the sting. Legacy and stand-alone solutions won’t stand up to the perseverance and lengths to which fraudsters are willing to go.
