GDPR Compliance Scams Rising
Organizations need to be on the lookout for GDPR-themed phishing lures, according to Mike Puglia, Chief Product Officer at Kaseya. In an article for ITProPortal, Puglia explains that GDPR compliance is something most organizations are worried about, and scammers are aware of this. An email concerning a possible GDPR violation would catch the attention of many employees, particularly executives and others responsible for ensuring compliance. This tactic is particularly effective since ignoring such a tip—if it were legitimate—could have legal ramifications down the road.
