Advanced Phishing Email Solution

Emails are now the No.1 method hackers use to get to your company data. They do this by simply asking users for their ID and password through a perfectly legitimate looking request.

Do you have protection in place, but still receive suspicious emails that bypass the filters used by the likes of Google or Microsoft?

THEY ARE GETTING SMARTER

Malicious content, email scams and phishing are not new, we have all received one. These emails are on the rise and what's worse? They are getting much smarter. Gone are the days of emails scattered with spelling and format errors asking for credit card details. We are now facing phishing emails that look and feel perfectly legitimate.

AN EXAMPLE

An email may appear to be from a Microsoft account page asking for a password reset, but it'll actually go to a fake location to collect the ID and password you type in. An email may appear to come from your MD, demanding urgent payment of a fake invoice, or it may give you a link to a fake company document that is actually a Ransomware deployment.

THE PROBLEM

The workforce is becoming more remote, mobile working means more email, document sharing and online collaboration. Complacency can creep in when working outside of an office environment, without the ability to quickly check with a colleague or member of IT staff. Cyber criminals only have to get it right once.

THE IMPACT OF PHISHING EMAILS

Credential Theft
Credential Theft

Credential theft via email phishing has become a widespread problem, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the issue. Users often reuse credentials across multiple systems, meaning stolen credentials can be used to break into corporate email systems or other assets, placing both individuals and organizations at growing risk.

29% of corporate security breaches involve the use of stolen credentials.

Randsomware Deployment
Randsomware Deployment

The profitability of ransomware is flourishing due to the simplicity of its business model and the ease of use of its operating model.

Ransomware can have an overwhelming impact on businesses of all sizes. Personal and corporate data, network share files (hosting sensitive employee data, intellectual property or customer data), and all other valuable content can be taken hostage by ransomware.

Fines
Fines

The Information Commissioner has the power to issue a monetary penalty for an infringement of the provisions of Part 3 of the Act - Law Enforcement Processing.

The standard maximum amount is £8.7 million or 2% of the total annual worldwide turnover in the preceding financial year, whichever is higher. However, a higher maximum does exist which is £17.5 million or 4% of the total annual worldwide turnover.

Data Exfiltration
Data Exfiltration

Data exfiltration jumped 20 percent during Q4 2020, now occurring in 70 percent of all ransomware attacks.

Ransomware threat actors are increasingly leveraging email phishing as the leading entry point in these destructive attacks.

Business Disruption
Business Disruption

Given business is built on trust, it's easy to see how a Phishing attack can cause business disruption.

The financial cost of remediation, the widespread reputational damage, impacted investor confidence and interruption of critical infrastructure & services, meaning employees are unable to carry out day-to-day tasks are a few examples of the impact to an organisation.
