Proofpoint's Latest Email Threat Report

A Global Analysis of Vulnerability and Attacks

Our latest cybersecurity threat report explores who’s being targeted, how they’re being attacked, and what you can do about it.

Here are some highlights:

  • More than 20% of the email addresses at the highest risk from malware and credential phishing attacks were generic aliases. 
  • Workers in R&D/engineering and marketing/PR support were among the departments facing the largest overall risk from email-based malware and phishing attacks. 
  • Workers in facilities/internal support also were among the groups at the highest overall risk from such attacks. But in terms of sheer volume, they faced a smaller number of attacks.
  • VAPs in lower-management roles are targeted in nearly 8% more email-based malware and phishing attacks than workers at other career levels.
