Letter: Left phishing for answers

By on

I find the ThreatStats extremely useful as a tool to show senior management that we have our fingers on the pulse at all times. Statistics are wonderful things, but I was at a loss to explain the phishing figures as published in the July issue.

The graph showed a huge rise in attacks, but the narrative stated a significant 1% rise?

It would also be very useful if the numbers stated could be clarified - is that the total number of attacks or scams? The most useful statistics would be a split between sectors - financial, retail etc. Finally, were the figures for attacks originating in the UK or worldwide?
