When it comes to cyber security, there’s a simple reason why email is the number one threat vector — people open emails. All it takes is for one person in the organization to download an attachment or click on a link that takes them to a website infected with malware for the entire organization to be impacted. There are now countless incidents of ransomware requiring organizations to either pay money to cybercriminals to regain access to encrypted files or incur substantial costs recovering data. Most of the time that malware was delivered within an email attachment cleverly crafted using social engineering techniques capable of tricking even the savviest end users into downloading that attachment.
There are millions of emails sent every day that might contain hidden malware, and it’s estimated that as many 44 percent of businesses were victims of an email attack using a compromised end user account in the past 12 months.
