According to Symantec, one out of every 131 emails contains malicious content.

Using this information, hackers craft advanced phishing and spoofing attacks even security pros struggle to identify.
A recent Verizon report revealed 43% of attacks in the education industry were driven by cyber espionage. These cybercriminals often use tactics like phishing and malware to breach networks and collect the intellectual property of academic researchers. While anti-malware and server patches can stop some of these attacks, an alarming amount remain successful.
