MetadataShow full item record
This research develops qualitative knowledge from the information security industry about communication tactics as a type of security vulnerability in infosec. These perspectives included security practitioners and popular security news media sources. Both aspects of this research are used to determine the difference between multiple areas of the information security industry. The focus of the research is how phishing is understood as an attack method by information security professionals to test weakness in organizational workforces and average information technology users. The perceptions and understanding of security professionals that use phishing as a method to test information security can provide further knowledge in how to assess and implement anti-phishing procedures and training. The results of this analysis aim to support broader security research by focusing on an area absent in the literature, thereby furthering the holistic approach in the security field and providing greater knowledge of phishing, tactics, understanding, and mitigation of cybersecurity threats.
