Is Email Security Something You Really Need to Focus On?

In a word, yes.

Email is the number one platform cyber criminals use for scams due to the heavy reliance on emails for business communication. According to email security services providers, 90% of security attacks begin with an email. An email security company reported that their quarterly threat summary for the first quarter of 2016 showed that there has been a 66% increase in emails containing malicious attachments and URL's compared to the previous quarter in 2015. Compared to the corresponding period in 2015.

This represents a staggering 800% increase! News of security breaches have been all over the news recently, and according to reports, ransom-ware will reach $1 billion in revenue by the end of 2016. Hackers are now using whaling tactics, phishing scams targeted at high-level executives, in order to steal valuable information from their computers by issuing fake legal documents such as subpoenas or tricking them into wiring large sums of money. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, whaling scams have led to over $2.3 billion in losses.
