How well do you know the do’s and don’ts of email security?
Email security is always important, but it’s extra important for email users on an organization’s network. If you fall victim to a hacker or malware attack on your company email network, it can potentially impact everyone in the organization and even your customers and business partners.
Hackers and thieves exploit email every day to break into business networks. You can help mitigate risks for your business by following good email security practices.
Advancements in Email Based Hacks & Attacks
Email based security threats against organizations have evolved in recent years. Phishing, spear fishing, spoofing, malware, ransomware, and social engineering attacks have skyrocketed. Email attackers are getting craftier and more precise in their targeting.
Not only that, but the amount of sensitive data up for grabs in email has grown. Companies today produce, analyze, and use more data than ever. Hackers are betting that a lot of that data passes through email, and they’re right. It is easier than ever for hackers to steal your organization’s money and information. All they need to make an attempt is your email address.
What happens next is up to you.
Attackers are banking on the chance that you’re going to fall for their tricks and let them in.
