Vade Secure recently released its 2020 version of their 'Phishers’ Favorites 2020 Year in Review' report. Microsoft, with its Microsoft 365 suite and treasure trove of possible business data, is once again the most impersonated brand in 2020. Unfortunately the cloud services industry was also the most targetted industry, with financial services and e-commerce taking the second and third spots. Part of the reason why cloud services took the top spot is the COVID-19 pandemic according to Vade Secure, with many new organizations implementing cloud services such as Teams, Zoom and Exchange Online to facilitate working from home.
