Whatis Whaling?


Whaling is a type of cybercrime in which attackers target high-level executives and other senior employees in order to steal sensitive information or carry out other fraudulent activities. These attacks often involve the use of phishing emails or other social engineering techniques to trick the victim into revealing their login credentials or other sensitive information. Whaling attacks can have serious consequences for the organizations that fall victim to them, as the attackers may be able to access sensitive financial or proprietary information, or even gain control of the company’s systems. It is important for businesses to educate their employees about the dangers of whaling attacks and to implement strong security measures to protect against them.
