Threat Actors Use Social Media for a Variety of Attacks
Threat actors are increasingly using social media to attack brands, VIPs, and customers. The anonymous nature and extensive reach of social media invite a broad spectrum of bad actors, exposing enterprises to substantial risk.
More than half of the world’s population actively engages in social media. Scammers target this audience with a broad array of threats, including social media impersonation schemes, defamation, physical violence, and counterfeit ads. As a result, businesses face costly cleanups, fraud losses, and brand damage.

Focus on Real Threats, Not False Positives
Businesses face an uphill battle churning through a high volume of potentially malicious data from a wide variety of threats while managing social media brand protection. This additional burden affects their ability to differentiate legitimate risks from false positives, severely impacting response times.
PhishLabs’ Social Media Protection risk monitoring service reduces the noise, efficiently categorizing and adding context to threats with finely tuned, automated risk analysis combined with expert review. This refined process provides enterprises with intelligence that is ready for action.
Streamline Mitigation, Strengthen Social Media Protection
Strengthening social media protection by taking down threats before they cause damage can be difficult and time-consuming. Each platform enforces unique policies and procedures for removing content and suspending accounts. Effective social media brand protection also takes time to gather the intelligence needed to build a convincing case that a profile is malicious. For these reasons, many enterprises lack the time, expertise, and budget to mitigate threats.
With PhishLabs, once a social media threat is identified, we immediately take action. We have the strong business relationships, procedural knowledge, and experience needed to quickly stop these attacks.
Whether it’s eliminating impersonations, financial scams, counterfeit ads, or reputational risks such as defamatory claims or unauthorized brand associations, PhishLabs Social Media Protection mitigates and minimizes the security threats to your business.
