At its simplest, it’s a hacker sending you an email, pretending to be someone else. Perhaps a supplier sending an invoice, or even an email from a customer.
Someone in your business (maybe even you) clicks on a link in the email, genuinely not meaning to do any harm. That’s it, just like that, the hacker gets access to their computer. And often from there they will spread malware into other parts of your IT system.
At TecSec we see this a lot and it’s worrying how effective hackers can be. We often hear that business owners believe their staff will never fall for such a thing. In our experience, the smartest most reliable people are the ones most likely to fall for it.
