Businesses across the planet rely on email to communicate, collaborate, and be productive. But that heavy reliance upon a single tool puts the email of businesses like yours squarely in the crosshairs of cybercriminals intent on doing harm. Your business must mitigate the risks from email and cyber attacks.
According to research, 66% of malware is installed via malicious email attachments1 and 96% of phishing attacks arrive by email.2
But that’s not all. Employees are a part of the email security puzzle.
According to one study, almost 20% of all employees are likely to click on phishing email links. Among those that click on phishing email links, 67.5% actually put their email login information into the spurious website. That amounts to 13.4% of employees who are likely to give away their company access credentials to cybercriminals.3
The answer to defending your email-based collaboration and efficiency is twofold:
1. Deploy and manage a top-shelf email security solution to help keep phishing emails and malware out of your employees’ inboxes. Email filtering and email cybersecurity is vital in mitigating your risk.
2. Provide email security awareness training for your employees to help them be a part of the solution.
