Title:Evolving Phishing Email Prevention Techniques: A Survey to Pin Down Effective Phishing Study Design Concepts
Subject(s):Targeted Phishing Email, Security Solutions, Study Design, Human Aspect, Human Susceptibility
Abstract:In the recent years, remote work is prevalent due to climate change (air pollution due to massive wildfire, flood) healthcare concerns (i.e. corona virus) and advancement of technological communication tools which are paving the way for cyber attackers to grab user attention. Email phishing is anticipated as a major problem and consistent in targeting the modern, increasingly remote workforce. There have been substantial researches conducted in defending phishing by developing Spam filters, detection mechanisms and security training programs. Will it be another way to conduct research in phishing email aspect: analyzing phishing attack attempts and projecting attacks; measuring human’s susceptibility and perception to those? This survey objective is to conduct a review of evolving trend of Phishing research from early stage to date on finding out research directions with a goal of designing effective user-based phishing study. In addition, this survey’s motivation is to highlight limitations and gaps in existing phishing research settings and strategies that can be considered to overcome those limitations in finding adversarial patterns for designing effective security solutions. The current landscape of attackers’ motive from existing research and sparsity of attack area can be helpful for establishing method in conducting Phishing Email research for finding patterns of adversarial behavior; designing attacks; successfully examining and measuring human’s perception to phishing.
