Interesting research.

In this article “Agari announced the first Annual Sumo Awards to dishonor phishing’s biggest contributors and enablers. The Sumo Awards categories identify why phish emails succeed, highlight unknowing contributors who aid criminal phishing, and suggest how businesses can take collective action and responsibility to prevent malicious attacks through email.


This year’s Sumo Awards focus on the successful characteristics of phishing attacks against the banking industry. Leveraging Agari’s Big Data Platform, which spans more than one billion mailboxes, Agari isolated and studied the one percent of phishing attacks on U.S. banks that succeeded to understand how they beat the defenses and landed in the inbox.
