As the most common business communication tool, email is the most susceptible to cyber-attack. There are other ways for hackers to infiltrate a network, however over 90% of cyber attacks start with an email. Despite several advances in Email Security gateway technology over the years, Malware does still occasionally get through. Hackers are resourceful and will use many different techniques to evade defences.
Email Security – No such thing as 100% secure
Once Malware does reach the inbox it may not execute immediately, leading to a build-up of potentially dangerous emails sitting in an unsuspecting victim’s inbox.
All of these emails are potential security banana skins which you should uncover and deal with quickly and appropriately. Also, the larger the organisation the bigger the potential Email Security hazard.
