Google and Amazon are now the most imitated brands for phishing


Earlier this year, Check Point revealed that Apple was the most imitated brand for phishing in Q1 but over the course of the last few months, it has fallen to seventh place with Google and Amazon now taking the top spots.

Phishing is estimated to be the starting point of over 90 percent of all cyberattacks and according to Verizon’s 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, nearly one third (32%) of all data breaches involved phishing activity. Additionally phishing was present in 78 percent of cyber espionage incidents and the installation and use of backdoors in company networks.
