Video: The prevalence of spam
Spam has always been a nuisance, but as the threat landscape continues to shift, its purpose is beginning to change. While it was initially a way to get users to click and spend money in various ways, now spam is being used as a vehicle to send bigger threats. Targeted phishing campaigns have already proven successful with recent espionage campaigns against the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
In this video, Tom Buoniello, senior vice president of product management at AppRiver sits with Greg Masters, managing editor at SC Magazine, to discuss this prevalent threat and what users can do to protect themselves.
