In partnership with Wakefield Research, we surveyed 4,000 professionals across the U.S., U.K., Australia, and Japan on their #phishing know-how and clicking habits. Looking at the data, we discovered some interesting (and worrisome) trends.
First, a lot of us are overconfident.
- 79% of people surveyed believe they can distinguish a phishing message from a real one.
- But nearly half (49%) of respondents admit to clicking links from unknown senders at work.
Second, many folks don’t really take precautions online.
- 59% of people who’ve clicked links from unknown senders have done so multiple times.
- Of people whose financial or personal information has been breached, 35% didn’t even change their passwords
