The importance of email security


The importance of email security

In today’s digital world, every business communicates via email and it has become such an everyday part of our lives. Even though we use email so freely, it is vital not to be complacent about protecting the data within emails and remaining confidential because it can cause serious damage to your business.

In fact, did you know in 2019, around a third of businesses in the UK identified at least one breach or attack each month? The most common types are phishing attacks at a whopping 80% along with impersonating emails, viruses, spyware or malware including ransomware.

With the growing threat of hackers, viruses, spam, phishing and identity theft, we have a responsibility to secure business data and email security must be a priority. With this in mind, to support our clients, we have further cemented our relationship with Barracuda Networks to further protect our customers’ email environments from cyber threats.
