Email Phishing Defense Solutions for Critical Infrastructure


InfraGard, the partnership between the FBI and private sector, defines the following industries as critical to national security: Defense, Energy and Utilities, Financial Services, Government, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Technology, Telecomm, and Transportation. Cyber-attackers target each industry to steal sensitive data or lock down systems with ransomware.

In the government sector, for example, the US Department of Defense every day repels about 36 million emails loaded with malware. At this rate, the Pentagon will soon receive 13 billion weaponized emails annually.1  In healthcare, 65% of CISOs worry that an employee will fall for a credential phish and 61% predict that malware will cause a major disruption in business processes.2

For most consumers and businesses, phishing attacks are annoying and sometimes very costly, but they don’t inflict physical damage. In critical infrastructure, however, an attack on a hospital could disrupt medical care or a spear phish against a nuclear power plant could potentially spell disaster.

Cofense delivers solutions that train employees at all levels to spot and report phishing so security teams can stop it. Our customers rank among the nation’s largest organizations in critical infrastructure sectors.
