Infographic: The Anatomy of a Phishing Email

Posted by Estelle Derouet on

Email fraud is on the rise—up more than 162% from 2010 to 2014. Yet 97% of the people around the globe can’t correctly identify a sophisticated phishing message.

This is bad news for marketers who rely on email to build trust, nurture leads, and drive revenue. After being phished, customers are 42% less likely to interact with a brand.

The good news is that companies can do a lot to prevent bad email from hitting the inbox, including implementing DMARC. But the reality is, bad email will get through. So the question becomes: how can brands mitigate the negative impact of email fraud?

Empowering your customers to identify phishing messages is a great mitigation tactic. This infographic will help you do it.
