Volume, Impact, Variety, and
Sophistication of Phishing Attacks on the Rise

With uncertainty rampant, 2021 saw a rise in the volume, variety, impact, and sophistication of phishing attacks. As the pandemic rumbled on in the United States and elsewhere, and displaced employees were still trying to get a grip on their new lives, more opportunities arose for phishers to exploit the spaces between the known and the unknown. Meanwhile, phishers constantly improved their techniques, developed and modularized their tools, and expanded their network of specialists, while sheer capacity
allowed for more attacks. Phishing became professionalized. It became an industry. As always, phishers surfed the news cycle.


INKY noted waves of new campaigns throughout the year. A widening array of professionals, amateurs using commercially available tools, and niche players in the evolving phishing industry launched campaigns characterized by their cleverness, insidiousness, deepening understanding of human nature and institutions, ability to exploit weakness in technical systems, and willingness to use any tactic (fear most of all). This kept the black hats one step in front of the white hats much of time.
