iOS users biggest target for mobile phishing attacks

Phishing continues to be a problem, and attacks are moving away from the email inbox. A new report found that iOS is the biggest target, with most attacks coming from game apps. According to this report, 81% of mobile phishing attacks happen outside of email, 63% happen on iOS devices, and 85% of organizations have been phished whether they know it or not.

Phishing attacks on mobile devices is becoming increasingly common, the report says, and may even be the most pressing security issue of 2017, bypassing ransomware and other serious threats. Mobile phishing attacks are predominantly targeting iOS users—63% of attacks occur on iOS, compared to 37% on Android. 


CEOs should be held accountable for cyber attacks & data breaches

According to a new report, CEOs should be the ones responsible in case of a cyber-attack and a data breach in an organization. CEOs should be aware of the "basic principles of security". However, CEOs shouldn’t be the only ones holding responsibility for cyber security. "Foundational security controls should be demonstrated from the board level all the way down to the workforce," the report states. Accountability starts with the CEO, but information security is a shared responsibility across every function and level of an organization.
