Diversified customers report receiving emails or form submissions through their website from people claiming to be photographers.

Information

Even the most sophisticated security plan may not protect you from an employee that clicks on a bad hyperlink, that attempts to open a dangerous email attachment, or that allows a fake technician to remote into their computer.

Hackers know this which is why they target your employees daily with email phishing campaigns, popups, browser redirections and alerts urging them to call fake technicians.
