SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Terra Verde, the Scottsdale-based cyber security and risk compliance services firm announced today the addition of enhanced phishing solutions for businesses to assess potential cyber threats. The company has added a phishing simulation platform that tests a company employee's susceptibility to phishing, to their portfolio of managed security services.
Phishing, a form of fraud, occurs when a cyber attacker attempts to learn as much about a business as possible, including account information, passwords, or other credentials. Most often, phishing attackers are masked as reputable, believable entities.
Phishing attacks have become more sophisticated over the last few years and can cause far-reaching consequences for any size business, including company reputation and significant loss of revenue. A recent Global IT Security Risks survey suggests that the typical damage from a breach can be $50,000 for small-to-mid-sized businesses and $690,000 for enterprises.
"Of all the methods to conduct fraud against an individual or an organization, phishing has been the most successful and effective. The ability to significantly impact a high number of people with a single e-mail, causing victims to provide access to critical information, has never been simpler," said Edward Vasko, Terra Verde CEO.
Companies are beginning to realize that their own employees can be the best first line of defense when it comes to phishing attacks. By increasing awareness and internally assessing how vulnerable employees are to these types of cyber attacks, Terra Verde's enhanced solutions are an excellent addition to provide to customers through a managed service.
