Email remains the number one threat vector. This is backed up (again) by a recent Barracuda survey, which found that of those organizations able to identify the source of a ransomware attack, a staggering 76 percent came through email.
And when it comes to email threats, phishing – and particularly spear phishing – have become a lucrative art. These attacks work because they are personalized. Criminals go to great lengths to create very compelling attacks, leveraging the incredible amount of information we make available online.
All it takes is one click on a malicious file or link, or one send of sensitive materials to an impostor, and the future of your business could be in jeopardy.
