You may have heard the warnings about phishing attacks, but have you heard of a vishing attack?

Vishing is short for “voice phishing,”and is performed over the phone using a voice call. It is another form of a social engineering attack where the criminal uses the emotions of the target to convince them into doing something they would not otherwise do, such as giving up private information used for identity theft.

The first step to preventing cyber criminals from getting their hands on your information is to educate yourself and your employees about these attacks, and then make sure you have a recovery plan in place.
