Tessian Explained: What is Spear Phishing?

In this episode of the Tessian Explained, we go over what a spear phishing attack is and how you can protect your organizations from these inbound threats. 


While phishing and spear phishing attacks may seem similar, there are many differences.

  • Phishing emails are sent in bulk and are relatively easy to execute by those with nefarious intent.
  • On the other hand, spear phishing is significantly lower in volume, much more targeted, and highly personalized.


Spear phishing attacks are often effective; they are difficult to spot because the email convincingly impersonates a trusted source known to the target.
