Recent research suggests that so-called spear phishing attacks are behind over 90 per cent of cyber-attacks on organisations, according to Tend Micro. An information security awareness company releases its latest advisory detailing the nature of such events and how to defend against them. The report can be read at: http://www.thesecurityco.com/news/expert-comment/cyber-attacks-begin-with-spear-phishing/.
Ruth Pooley of The Security Company, says: “Almost all spear phishing involves sending extremely convincing emails with malicious file attachments.

There is no other defence against this other than education and awareness training.”
