91% of cyber attacks start with an email.

Emails are the most frequently exploited attack vector by hackers. Each year, countless organizations lose millions of dollars over lapses in email security. 

Gone are the days of poorly worded Nigerian prince emails. Today, malicious emails are more complex and harder to distinguish from legitimate communications. For example, one Intel Security survey uncovered that  97% of respondents couldn’t spot a phishing email. This is imperative when you consider that nine in 10 cyber attacks start with a phishing email. 

Why? Cybercriminals are continually improving their methods of attack. Email spoofing makes illegitimate spam and phishing emails look legitimate by altering the “From” field data. They use the trustworthiness of individuals and organizations to manipulate email recipients into taking actions that expose them to cybersecurity risks. 

The criminals use social engineering to produce believable scenarios, impersonating well-known companies or vetting potential targets on LinkedIn to tailor their approaches. And nobody is safe, from the lowest level administrative employees on up to the C-Suite – even partners can be targeted in an effort to get at your organization.
