Posted September 29, 2020
- Microsoft on Tuesday announced the release of its “Digital Defense Report,” which is described as “a reimagining” of Microsoft’s “Security Intelligence Report” (SIR).
- Microsoft harvests more than “8 trillion security signals per day” from endpoints, the network edge and the cloud.
- Cybercriminals typically send spoofed e-mails pretending they are from official sources to get users to click on malicious links.
- The report found that “based on our Office 365 telemetry, the top five spoofed brands are Microsoft, UPS, Amazon, Apple, and Zoom.”
