Spear phishing: top threats and trends

A specialized economy is emerging around email account takeover as cybercriminals find new ways to attack and exploit email accounts.

Over the past year, Barracuda researchers teamed up with researchers at UC Berkeley to study the end-to-end lifecycle of a compromised account.

Examining 159 compromised accounts that span 111 organizations, the researchers studied the anatomy of an email compromise: how the account takeover happens, how long attackers have access to the compromised account, and how attackers use and extract information from these accounts.

This report provides an in-depth look at the threats organizations face from account takeover and the types of defense strategies you need to have in place to protect against these types of attacks.
