Spam emails are more powerful than ever
Strengthen your armour against them, before they creep in further than your junk folder
A recent research report by Global InfoSec shows 83% of their respondents experienced phishing attacks in 2018. Reports of credential compromise have risen 70% - and they’ve soared 280% since 2016.
Malicious agents are building a micro-economy around sensitive corporate information.
Cyber criminals are trading stolen company secrets and intellectual property for cash, and incidents of businesses and individuals being scammed online is at an all time high. While banks, traditionally the biggest targets for online con artists, are tightening their security, spammers are turning their attention to smaller organisations and individuals who are less prepared and protected.
This is even more prominent in today’s malware-ridden world, where security compromises are more unnoticeable than ever. Contrary to the myth of cyber attacks causing your computer to transform into some sort of rabid machine with laughing skulls all over the screen, a compromise could be as simple and subtle as changing your invoice bank details to their own.
Email security is essential - regardless of antivirus systems
93% of company security breaches start with a phishing email, and there’s reason for it: it’s the easiest way in!
Hackers know you have anti-virus and malware systems in place for your devices and servers, but they also know many don’t have such security in place for their emails. Industry experts stress the importance of email security procedures, so why aren’t we implementing them?
