Threat actors in the Financial Services sector target executives, employees, and contractors with privileged technical access to infrastructure. Their main motive is financial, and their main goal is to commit financial fraud through Business Email Compromise (BEC). They rely on spear phishing and infrastructure vulnerabilities to execute their attack plan. But first, they conduct target reconnaissance to identify opportunities to attack and build dossiers of their intended victims by leveraging open source intelligence sources (OSINT) in the open, deep, and dark web, looking at professional and personal digital identities.
Picnic taps into the same OSINT sources hackers use, and it operates its proprietary technology to analyze human risk, predict attack pathways, and deliver prioritized remediations that harden your human attack surface to prevent social engineering attacks. By partnering with Picnic to make their organizations a tough target for attackers very early in the attack planning phase, our customers see a quantifiable reduction in impersonation, spear phishing, and credential stuffing attacks.

Almost half of the population believes an email is safe if it contains familiar branding.
Forty-one percent of all phishing attacks target the Financial Services sector.
Stop reacting. Start preempting.
A defense-in-depth strategy begins beyond traditional security controls to stop phishing, smishing, and vishing attacks before they start.
