What Is Vishing In Cybersecurity? At BestCybersecurityNews, we help young learners and seniors learn more about cybersecurity. Vishing is a form of phishing that uses voice communication rather than email communication to deceive victims into providing money or personal details. Cybercriminals commonly utilize calls that appear to come from banks, credit card companies, or service providers when targeting victims of this scam. An automated or live caller, either automated or live, claims the victim’s account has been compromised and instructs them to contact another number for help. Victims typically provide sensitive data or account credentials when asked.
