Email Attacks Likely the Top Threat in 2019

In a press briefing last December 6 at the Makati Shangri-La, cybersecurity firm Palo Alto Networks said that email attacks may likely be the top cyber threat in 2019.

Oscar Visaya, country manager of Palo Alto, explained that a lot of attacks nowadays are coming from emails that could potentially lead the recipient to a phishing site. Most of it starts in the business email which displays a phishing site masquerading as a legitimate one. The phishing site will then collect the user’s valid credentials which the hacker can use to steal money or private information.

Visaya said that they are constantly advising both the public and private sector to always be highly critical of the emails they receive.
