Week of March 5 – March 11, 2017

This week, we saw a decrease in phishing activity for the top 20 brands we’re tracking, grouped by industry. Overall activity decreased >30%. Industries with the largest decreases were: Electronic Payment Systems at >65%, Internet Search and Navigation at >40%, and Telecommunications also at >30%.

Only Computer Hardware saw an increase in phishing activity, at >30%.

Our Phishing Report offers a snapshot into the weekly trends of the top industries that are being targeted by phishing attacks. By pulling information from major ISPs, partners, clients, feeds, and our own proprietary honeypots and web crawlers, we are able to get a 360-degree view of the phishing landscape. The percentages posted on our blog are based on the sum of the phishing threats of the top 20 brands, and do not include anything below the top 20 threshold.
