Traditional SPAM is sent from a bulk emailing server and is often stopped by utilizing key words, sender reputation scores or a mail transfer agent. Did you know that emails in the pharmacy industry advertising prescription drugs, etc., account for roughly 81% of SPAM messages and only 2.3% are phishing scams?

Spear Phishing is more of a targeted approach and is often targeted at a specific industry, organization or person.
