The Growing Threat on Email Security
Email has become the main communication platform for almost every company today. Cybercriminals exploit this fact. They target email as their main point of entry. Hackers capitalize on the high chance of human error and relaxed email security.
For example – an average employee receives many emails daily but doesn’t typically have enough time to carefully review each one. As a result, human error usually comes into play. Similarly, we may think that since we’re not sending highly sensitive information, there is no need for email security. This is when it becomes a big mistake. These scenarios give us a false sense of security. They effectively make us feel relaxed and unintentionally negligent.
Cybercriminals will exploit any vulnerability in a company’s security. They attack unforgivingly. Hackers do not just use email for its content. They particularly use an email account as an entry point to breach a company’s network. With the ill intent of causing damage, they start accessing highly sensitive company information.
