Why Should We Care About Personal Smishing Attacks?

Are you seeing an increase in phishing texts on your phone? Roger Grimes, our resident data-driven defense evangelist, posted a timely article on his latest experience with smishing (SMS Phishing) and why we should be concerned about it. I have similarly found that my daily smishes have increased to one or two a day. This increase might be related to recent Facebook data dump which included telephone numbers to hacking groups forums. Quite possible there a lots of freelancing bad guys doing their own smishing campaigns. With so many employees working from home, they are susceptible to these attacks, and now is an excellent time to include smishing in your employee’s security awareness training.
