Beyond basic antivirus

As cyber-criminals continue to use email as a primary vehicle to steal data and deliver advanced threats, it has become vital for business owners to implement email security as a matter of priority.  More than 100 billion business emails are sent and received each day. Only one in five is legitimate. Email is a top vector for cyber-criminals to breach your organisation. Email-borne attacks are responsible for more than 93% of breaches.

There are three main threats that every organisation needs to mitigate:  Spam, Spoofing, Malware.

Spam

Unsolicited spam is irritating and time-consuming, but some spam is dangerous. Spam scams are disguised to look legitimate and attempt to get staff members and users to give up bank details, sensitive company information or confidential documents. The fraudsters use the information to steal money, business information, divert payments, etc. It is essential to guard against phishing scams, advanced fee fraud and other spam-related attempts that disrupt your business.

Spoofing

The term “spoof” means to hoax, trick, or deceive. Email spoofing is the forgery of an email header so that the message appears to have originated from someone or somewhere other than the actual source. Email spoofing is a tactic used in phishing and spam campaigns because people are more likely to open an email when they think a legitimate source has sent it. For example, if an email payment instruction looks like it’s coming from a financial director, the accounting department could inadvertently pay a cyber-criminal. Email security and cyber education basics are essential when it comes to online security.

Malware

Malware is an acronym for “Malicious Software”. It includes viruses, spyware, adware, worms, ransomware and trojans etc. Users trigger nearly 100% of malware by opening or clicking infected files and links or enabling macros within a document. Malware can steal credentials, mine cryptocurrencies, and even choose what payload to deliver based on where the victim is in the world or what is on their computer.
