Email is the top marketing communication channel and yet, it is also considered one of the weakest links in a business’s security with 94% of cyber-threats originating in the email environment.
From spear-phishing through impersonation to account takeovers – traditional gateway protections are limited. As cyber-criminals update their attack infrastructure quicker than ever, businesses must embrace the latest technologies to stay ahead of any email security threats.
To help businesses protect their email environment, Darktrace, a world-leading AI cybersecurity company, has released an Email Security Threat Report 2020 which will explore the various avenues by which cyber-criminals are targeting corporate inboxes and teach you how to get ready for the latest wave of email attack campaigns.
The email attacks documented in the report are divided into four highly sophisticated attack categories that routinely bypass business’s “protective skin” –
1) spear-phishing and payload delivery
2) supply chain account takeover
3) social engineering and solicitation
4) compromised employee credentials
