Digital Risk Protection for Executives

Executives and other VIPs are frequently attacked, threatened, and impersonated on social media. If left unmitigated, these threats can lead to financial losses, physical harm, and significant brand damage.

Managing Executive Threats

PhishLabs partners with enterprises to protect their executives from digital threats such as reputational damage, intimidation, or impersonation.

Threat actors regularly track and monitor the online activity of executives looking for opportunities that can be exploited. And, the more prominent the individual, the more likely that their social media accounts will be targeted.

If these threats go unchecked, they can lead to data breaches, loss of proprietary information, damage to your assets and reputation, or even physical incidents. PhishLabs uses a combination of advanced technology and human expertise to detect, verify, and mitigate identified threats that target executives, their immediate family, and their associated organization’s users.

Executive Threats

Impersonation
Executives are often impersonated on social media with fake accounts designed to resemble the real ones. PhishLabs monitors posts, profiles, and other content across social media for accounts attempting to impersonate key executives. Once confirmed, our team has an abusive account suspended and removed.
Hacktivism
Idealistically motivated groups launch attacks intended to damage, take advantage of, and embarrass their targets, especially executives.
Intimidation
Social media has made it easy to express displeasure with those you dislike or disagree with. Those seeking to inflict harm use misinformation to inflame outrage and launch abusive campaigns against those they want to harass and intimidate. Executives and their families are often targeted in these campaigns.
Doxing
Threat actors will often research and broadcast information about individuals and organizations that is harmful. For example, publishing the home address of an executive involved in a controversial public issue. This can create high-risk situations that may lead to physical harm and fraud.
Oversharing
We monitor for accidental disclosures of confidential information. Whether it’s source code, private company information, or sensitive personal details, these disclosures are substantial risk.
