The Technology Industry Needs Powerful Email Security
The technology industry provides organizations across all other sectors with services critical to their every-day operations. And our reliance on technology providers makes them a lucrative target for cybercriminals. Because of this, the technology sector is among the top five most targeted industries. And the number one way for bad actors to breach technology providers is via email. This not only leaves the compromised company itself at risk of data loss and financial damage, but their partners and customers, too; technology providers often work with a global network of suppliers that help them deliver their services to customers around the world. If your company falls victim to a cyberattack, that attacker could exploit your corporate relationships to also compromise each of the businesses you work with. This is known as a vendor email compromise (VEC) attack, and is one of the most dangerous and prevalent threats facing the technology industry today.
How Technology Providers Can Protect Their Emails
In today’s digital-first world, organizations across all sectors are increasingly relying on technology providers to enable the to work efficiently, flexibly and securely. This reliance makes technology providers not only a lucrative target for cyberattacks, but also a useful tool with which they can exploit other businesses: over 70% of phishing attempts that involve brand impersonation are associated with brands in the technology sector. One of the best ways to mitigate that risk is to prevent malicious emails from ever reaching your employees’ inboxes in the first place. A strong email security solution will scan all inbound communications for malicious activity and automatically quarantine or remove any threats before they have the chance to reach their intended recipients. To effectively detect and remediate successful account compromise attacks, your organization must implement a solution that proactively scans all internal email communications for anomalous activity, so that you can identify threats and prevent any further damage. Ensuring Compliance Ensuring compliance can be a complex, time-consuming task, particularly when undertaken manually. But failing to comply with regulatory data protection standards such as GDPR, CCPA, LGPD and POPI can lead to large fines, as well as data loss and reputational damage should your organization fall victim to an attack. Powerful email security solutions enable you not only to be compliant, but also to prove your compliance by offering robust usage reporting tools and compliance-focussed policy configurations. They maintain your policies and blacklists for you, so your security team can focus on what they do best: securing the data of your business and your customers.
