Armorblox Email Security Threat Report Reveals Huge Uptick in Language-Based Business Email Compromise Attacks
Armorblox today released its 2022 Email Security Threat Report, which highlights the use of language-based attacks that bypass existing email security controls. The inaugural report uncovers how the continued increase in remote work has made critical business workflows even more vulnerable to new forms of email-based attacks, often resulting in financial fraud or credential theft.
The Armorblox report is based on data gathered across 58,000+ customer tenants, end-user feedback, and threat research. It documents both the rise in targeted attacks and the increased sophistication, accuracy, and financial impact of email-based attacks.
Key findings in the report include:
Attackers are moving away from decades-old approaches that use malicious links or attachments in broad-based attack campaigns, to targeted attacks where the language in the email is used to compromise a user's trust. The Armorblox 2022 Email Security Threat Report presents the associated trends for targeted email attacks across the four most prevalent threat types - BEC, financial fraud, phishing attacks, and impersonation attacks.
