Is your business backed up?14 January 2022
Email is the most commonly exploited vector for cyber attacks. If that sounds familiar, it should. It’s been true for years, and likely will be true for years to come.
But just because that bare fact hasn’t changed, doesn’t mean that the nature of the threat has remained static. In fact, methods and payloads used in email-borne attacks have been evolving rapidly—and this means that your defenses against such attacks need to evolve as well.
Modern email threats include targeted attacks that entice an unsuspecting user to click on a malicious link, download an infected attachment, provide credentials, or leak other forms of confidential data that can be used to propagate the attack chain.
These types of attacks range in sophistication, severity, and impact. From spam campaigns that deliver malicious payloads to large number of users, to domain-spoofing, phishing, and highly customized spear phishing and business fraud, the range of methods used to bypass traditional security is increasing rapidly.
Depending on the nature of the attack, victims incur increasingly significant financial losses and business damage. Protecting against these types of attacks requires a comprehensive strategy that goes beyond traditional signature-matching.
