You have probably already heard about the malicious practice of phishing. Whaling is closely related, but different. As you can find out here, whaling can be defined as a ‘way to steal confidential data (such as the personal data of employees) or money from an organization’. This is usually done by sending a fake e-mail, allegedly from a trusted sender, to an employee. The employee is then enticed to reveal company secrets or to authorize a substantial payment. Whaling is also known as CEO fraud because the request for data or money is often made to appear to be coming from someone in a top or senior position. Because of this factor, the receiving party can be made to feel reluctant to deny the sender’s request. Fortunately, there are ways in which DeepBlue can help you be more vigilant about these attacks.
To help protect your organization against whaling, DeepBlue can offer you various services.
By now, we hope to have informed you of the risks associated with whaling and some of DeepBlue’s methods of protecting your organization against this threat.
