  • Risky and They Know It: Unveiling Human Behavior in the State of the Phish Report 2024

    27 FEB 2024 · Today’s episode revolves around the latest edition of our monumental research endeavor, the "State of the Phish" report. Joining host Brian Reed is a diverse panel of global experts: Jennifer Cheng from Singapore, Carl Leonard from the U.K., Marcelo Bezerra from Brazil, and Paul Chavez from the U.S. While we see new encounters with malware strains, vulnerabilities, and tactics yearly, the human element remains a constant. In an era of human-based risks, safeguarding people is as crucial as securing networks and infrastructure. Noteworthy insights include a decline in successful phishing attacks (from 88% to 75%) but an underlying concern as three-fourths of organizations still fall victim. A groundbreaking aspect of this report is its inclusion of user actions, revealing that 71% of users engage in risky behaviors—96% fully aware of the risks. The panel explores the cultural and organizational factors contributing to this phenomenon, touching on convenience, urgency and leadership buy-in. Other topics discussed include: - Regional perspectives & cultural influences - Global validation of user behavior insights Tune in for a riveting discussion that goes beyond statistics, unraveling the intricate web of human behavior in the face of cybersecurity challenges.
