Phishing attacks continue to pose a significant threat to organizations, with Microsoft being the most targeted brand in Q1 2024.


In Q1 2024 [1] [2] [3] [4], Microsoft was the most impersonated brand in phishing attacks [1] [2] [3] [4], accounting for 38% of attempts [1] [4]. Google and LinkedIn each faced 11% of attacks [2]. Check Point identified a Microsoft phishing campaign using deceptive email subjects and sender identities to trick recipients into revealing sensitive information [2]. This led them to a phishing website that mimicked an Outlook login page. Amazon experienced a decrease in phishing attempts, while LinkedIn and Airbnb also appeared in the top 10 most impersonated brands list [3].


The prevalence of phishing attacks highlights the importance of remaining vigilant and following IT security protocols to reduce risks. Organizations must continue to educate employees on the dangers of phishing and implement robust security measures to protect sensitive information.
