But oversharing - or not being wary of impostors - can lead to serious compromises in personal and professional security. 

In a press release on the report's findings, Phishlabs “enterprises must broaden their line of defense [in 2022,] starting with strong, cross-channel monitoring, and building relationships with technology providers in new areas.” 

“Fraud-related attacks made up almost half of all social media threats in 2021”

In this episode of the EM360 podcast, Head of Content Max Kurton talks to John LaCour, Founder & CTO of Phishlabs and Principal Strategist at parent company HelpSystems, about:
