Shut the Door on Spear Phishing
As with emails used in regular phishing expeditions, spear-phishing messages appear to come from a trusted source. Phishing messages usually appear to come from a large and well-known company or website with a broad membership base, such as Google or PayPal. In the case of spear phishing, however, the apparent source of the email is likely to be an individual within the recipient’s own company — generally someone in a position of authority — or from someone the target knows personally.
Many enterprise employees have learned to be suspicious of unexpected requests for confidential information and will not divulge personal data in response to emails or click on links in messages unless they are positive about the source. The success of spear phishing depends upon three things: The apparent source must appear to be a known and trusted individual; there is information within the message that supports its validity; and the request the individual makes seems to have a logical basis.
