Phishing attacks threatening Internet users at work

Trend Micro study reveals how spam-enabled phishing attacks are influencing end-user expectations of IT to protect employee privacy. The study involves 1,600 non-IT professionals from various sized organizations in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan. Of those who reported falling victim of a phishing scam, more than half (58%) reported that their privacy was violated. At least a third said they lost personal information, experienced drop-offs in productivity, or were victims of identity theft. In addition to the personal impact on individual end users, more than one of every five victims (21%) said they lost corporate information as well.
