2024 State of the Phish – Today’s Cyber Threats and Phishing Protection

Published by Proofpoint

Is Your Organisation Cover with Phishing Protection?

Every day, users around the world make choices between security and convenience, often choosing to favour the latter. But as you might expect, different languages, cultures and levels of digital maturity play into these decisions, often leading to significantly different outcomes. Implementing phishing protection is one way to mitigate risk.

For our tenth annual State of the Phish report, we’ve put together in-depth regional summaries to explore how local nuances affect user behaviour when it comes to cybersecurity awareness and the importance of phishing protection.

Here are a few highlights from the Asia Pacific and Japan summary:

  • Only 28% of users in South Korea consider security to be their responsibility, significantly below the global average of 41%.
  • Japan had the highest number of users who say they never take a risky action, at 53% vs a global average of 29%.
  • Training is paying off in Australia; after a 52% increase in training on the topic, successful spear-phishing attacks declined from 88% in 2022 to 56% in 2023.
