Over 80% of All Phishing Attacks Targeted U.S. Organizations

U.S. entities remained the most attractive targets of phishing attacks throughout 2018, with an estimated 84% of the total volume of millions of incidents analyzed during the last year by threat intelligence company PhishLabs.

While in 2017 U.S. organizations were hit by 85% of all phishing attacks launched worldwide and detected by PhishLabs, the 1% decrease in share did not translate into a decrease in overall volume.

This happened because, as PhishLabs' 2019 Phishing Trends and Intelligence Report states, the total phishing volume increased significantly between 2017 and 2018 by 40,9%, rising "steadily during Q1 of 2018, remained high in Q2 and Q3, and declined in Q4."
