33 Phishing Attack Statistics in 2024 Every MSP Should Know About

Welcome to the new reality of AI-generated phishing and social engineering attacks. 

Small business owners and MSPs alike must provide their clients with a line of defense against advanced phishing attacks and other email-related threats

Implementing outdated phishing simulations isn’t effective either. An employee might accidentally download a malicious file attachment that could result in a massive security breach.

If that isn’t bad enough, threat actors have begun leveraging AI-powered tools such as ChatGPT and other LLMs to produce more sophisticated phishing prompts. 

AI-generated phishing emails can bypass traditional filters and detection systems with striking accuracy. They can easily mimic the recipient’s writing style and language patterns and use personalized details that make the messages seem incredibly legitimate.

This looming thought gives MSPs and small business owners a lot to consider when it comes to safeguarding their inboxes and their clients’ inboxes from the latest phishing attack threats. 

Here are 33 alarming phishing statistics in 2024 that every MSP should know about.
