E-mail Security

Number 1 cause of data breaches

9 out of 10 data breaches are caused by human error when using email. In the meantime, at over more than 95% of organizations, employees have access to their corporate e-mail using their personal devices. Do you also see the connection?  

Only a few organizations have an advanced email security policy. This makes them a target for cyber-attacks such as malware, ransomware and phishing attacks to break into the corporate network and have sensitive information stolen. Today, attacks are increasingly sophisticated that standard email security is no longer effective. For this reason, there are several advanced methods to secure email communications and accounts.

Encryption and Email Authentication of email are effective in preventing unauthorized access to the information in the email. These have been combined together in the DMARC protocol to ensure the maximum security of both methods. In addition, an    E-mail Gateway is effective to scan all incoming and outgoing e-mails to block threats. Cloud email security is also becoming increasingly important as more companies migrate to a Cloud or hybrid email platform.

Finally, some tips below you can share with your colleagues to use email securely.

  • Always check the sender: a strange email address is often a clue to recognize phishing. The section after the @-sign should end with the domain name. Good: newsletter@kahuna.nl. Wrong: newsletter@emaillogin-kahuna.nl
  • Never just open any link or attachment: malicious links or attachments can contain malware such as zip, .exe, .js, .lnk, .wsf, .scr, and .jar.
  • Never give out your personal information
  • A password manager can be useful: it stores multiple passwords for different websites. Criminals cannot enter all your accounts with one password.
  • Beware of language mistakes: phishing mails often contain language and typing errors.
  • Non-personal salutation: beware of salutation as an esteemed customer or esteemed relation
  • Check whether you are already an existing customer or have signed up for something, win actions, etc.? In case of doubt? Report it to your IT department
