Mobile Phishing, the Next Battleground

  • With the rising popularity of iOS and Android devices for everything from sending a client an SMS to attending a Zoom call, it was only a matter of time before cybercriminals seized the opportunity to target users through the least protected and most popular communication medium, mobile.
  • Most phishing vendors have not kept pace with the innovations made by cybercriminals in the mobile space and are still focused on email-based phishing.
  • With the lack of built-in phishing protection within iOS and Android, Mobile users are left with no choice but to rely on their security awareness training to dodge these phishing attacks.
