You’re a busy professional, constantly juggling emails from colleagues and clients. One day, just before big debit orders go off, you get an email from your bank. They’re urgently requesting you to update your account information due to a security breach. It all looks legit and, worried about your debit orders bouncing, you click on the provided link and complete the form with your personal and financial information.
Weeks later your bank account is cleaned out and upon enquiring at the bank discover that they never sent that email. You’ve fallen victim to a sophisticated phishing attack, a common form of email-based threat.
Your personal and financial information is out there somewhere, leading to unauthorized transactions and a headache of resolving the situation. But you don’t know where to start!
Don’t make a mistake now that can cost you thousands of rands.

They not only compromise personal data but also pose significant risks to businesses, causing data breaches, financial losses, and reputational damage.
