Phishing attacks are very frequent, and they entail sending a large number of bogus emails to unwary individuals while posing as a trusted source.
Fremont, CA: A cybersecurity threat is any malicious attack that attempts to grab unauthorized access to data, obstruct digital processes, or damaged data. Individuals such as corporate spies, hacktivists, terrorist groups, hostile nation-states, criminal organizations, lone hackers, and disgruntled employees can all pose cybersecurity dangers.
