How secure is your email?

Share

Did you know that 91% of all cyber-attacks start through email?

Email has become the single most important form of business communication, yet poses the biggest threat to your business. With increasingly sophisticated and difficult to detect cyber-attacks, are you aware of the latest threats?

spear-phishing

Spear Phishing: Targeted emails ‘appearing’ from someone you know to access confidential data such as passwords, credit card details or customer data.

Whaling: Based on a big “phish” analogy, these new attacks impersonate the CEO, CFO or other senior executive, making the target react to perceived power.

Think it doesn’t affect you?

In 2014, 74% of SMEs experienced an information security breach. The cost of breaches is on the rise, with severe attacks costing SMEs as much as £311k in 2015. An attack not only compromises your systems, it can result in data loss, reputational damage and fines.

How to protect your email from cyber-threats

Protecting your business against advanced email threats is possible. Cloud-based provider, Mimecast, offers the most comprehensive email security and compliance solution in the market today, with;

  • Impersonation protection against malware-less whaling attacks
  • Targeted protection against malicious URLs in spear phishing attacks
  • Defense against weaponised attachments

Already using an email security provider? Mimecast offers added value with an integrated email security, continuity and archiving solution from as little as £5 per user.

Email security is a crucial part of your overall IT security strategy. With the European General Data Protection Regulation expected in May 2018, IT security will grow in importance. Companies found to inadequately protect customer data will be fined up to €20m or 4% of annual turnover.
