There have already been 6,000 potential e-commerce phishing sites designed to mimic the 50 top e-retailers this year, and the figure could climb to 9,000 by year’s end, NormShield’s State of E-Commerce Phishing 2019 report predicted today.
The use of security certificates, once a badge of authenticity for the internet, among phishing websites has almost doubled, rising to 15% in 2019 from 8.5% in 2018, according to research from risk-monitoring service NormShield Inc. published Wednesday.
Hackers who create phishing websites to steal people’s banking credentials are putting more effort into making those sites look legitimate, according to a report out this morning from the cybersecurity company Normshield.
As Bob Maley, CSO at NormShield and former CISO for the state of Pennsylvania, put it, if a victim organization has no recovery plan or any idea of what the impact of losing everything that has been encrypted, “then the decision becomes one of desperation.”
DVV Solutions, a provider of third-party risk management (TPRM) and IT security services, has partnered with NormShield, a provider of standards-based external cyber risk assessment and mitigation recommendations.
