Keeping up with compliance for GDPR is a huge undertaking on its own. Now organizations throughout the world have to be aware of cybercriminals looking to exploit their weariness about violating the regulations via a new GDPR phishing campaign.

This new phishing scam uses the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation to attack businesses across several industries. These fake GDPR compliance emails are targeting high-profile decision-makers at these firms in executive and upper management roles.

The phishing scam tries to harvest credentials by leveraging misconceptions concerning GDPR to steal email login credentials from unsuspecting targets.

Keep an eye out for a sender email address spoofed to look like an automated message from the targeted business’s security department. The email body displays convincing graphics, and savvy users can identify the sender as a Gmail user, not an actual security authority.

Organizations like yours should watch out for this phishing campaign and train employees to avoid iterating with these emails. Instead, be sure to report suspicious email to their IT department.
