Definitionally, phishing is a social engineering attack that tricks users into clicking on a link that takes them to a site that either a) delivers a malicious payload to compromise a device, or b) further tricks them into divulging their credentials. While the former immediately weaponizes the device, the latter often provides the reused passwords that lead to compromise and penetration of the corporate network and resources.
When it comes to phishing attempts on mobile devices, mobile users are generally the first to visit phishing websites and are more likely to share private information on those phishing websites. Considering the majority of emails are opened on a mobile device, phishing presents quite a security challenge for organizations.
