At the same time, this expansion is the latest to be added to Google Chat, all with the goal of better protection against phishing. Because, it is this cyber threat that has been breaking all records lately and proving to be very successful.
Unfortunately, according to Atlas VPN, as many as 54 percent of all successful phishing attacks end up stealing customer and consumer data, and it is worrying that a large percentage (48 percent) also access data in the systems.
While successful attacks are worrying, equally worrying is the fact that 83 percent of organizations state they have faced this type of phishing attack. So, all of them still have a lot of room to work on the safety and education of employees, because phishing is primarily a way of attack in which gullible individuals are sought as targets.
Unfortunately, this is not the only method of attack, which is why cyber threats are so dangerous. But most of them can be solved with simple prevention. For example, double login, secure networks, devices that are intended exclusively for business purposes …
Therefore, the fact that Google Chat warns in advance of a possible danger is certainly a step forward and can serve as an example to others in the industry. Because, not everything can be attributed to the carelessness of an individual. Technology companies are there to create the safest possible environment.
Also, this is just one of the moves pulled by Google. Namely, through many of his services, stricter protection against phishing was introduced. By that we mean Google Docs and Gmail in the first place, where billions of users share and store highly sensitive and valuable data.
