According to Verizon’s 2017 data breach investigations report (DBIR), manufacturing companies are the most likely target to receive and click email messages that are phishing attacks. That does not mean your Industry is immune however.

But when the user clicks and is duped into logging into the attacker’s page, the attacker captures the credentials and now owns the account. That’s why 13 percent of manufacturing phishing messages are successful.” Many IT professionals think that you can just -set it and forget it - in terms of Cloud Security settings but that is not the case.
