Who is especially at risk of these attacks? Any industry handling sensitive and valuable data. The healthcare, legal, and financial industries are prime examples of high value targets.

Despite advancements in security, malicious emails are still slipping past defenses, with a 104.5% increase in breaches bypassing secure email gateways. The rise of new threats, like QR code-related attacks, adds complexity to the landscape. New malware families are continuing to emerge with the rise of phishing schemes.
